Turkey to Go
Its a yummy must have, but - save your stomach space! skip it - you can get it at their new food trucks year round all over town. Go for something you can't have the rest of the year!
This is worth the walk and a repeat food item! The salsa is fresh! The more you add the hotter it gets. Control your own heat factor.
The beergarita is a refreshing summer alternative on a hot day! Find it in the Crossroads Gardens next to the Ball Park Cafe.
Carmen's (been going my whole life) picks by Carmen Shoberg
The giant slide is a great place to meet family and friends, (because everyone knows where it is) then all take a ride down the slide together - or just watch the kids go down.
Love to see the county kids/people and their livestock. Take the barn tours they are informational and fun and don't take too long.
State Fair Museum
Located in Heritage square, it's a little well kept peek into the Fair's history, learn something new, marvel at all the grandstand acts that have come through, get a load of the costumes and hair do's from the past......
Beer Garden's in a tilt-a-whirl seat
Go sit and relax with a beer or pop and watch the city meet the county - best place to people watch, you have your county folks coming from the barns and the city folks heading for the midway - have a seat be ready to be entertained by some GOOD people watching!

Waaay better than a pronto pup (aka flour dog) because corn dogs are coated with a thick,delicious corn meal batter that a pronto pup can't touch!
Pork Chop on a stick
The place near the haunted house makes the best grilled pork chops on a stick at the fair!
Hot and fresh from the fryer - awesome dipping sauce with a hint of spiciness too!
Sweet Martha's Cookies
Best while warm and fresh from the oven!
