The best of the best by Bruce Montgomery
There is great food, just good food, food you have to eat because your parents liked it. New food, old favorites, food that you wouldnt buy but it is in the blue ribbon book. Food that catches your eye or otherwise intrigues you. Food you buy just to share. There are patriotic standards like the Dairy Building malts or all the milk you can drink. There is ethnic food of every description.
The Ag Hort building has displays that change every three days or so. If you dont like the African Violets then come back in a few days and the Gladiolas will be there. There is the perennial family joke of you can lead a whore-to-culture but you cant make her a lady when we first pass the Ag-Hort building.
The 4H building is like a Norman Rockwell painting.
The animals; who knew there were so many kinds of chickens? The Miracle of Birth Center is a bit messy but fascinating.
Wait all year! by Cassondra Harder
Here but once a year! The stand across from the cattle barn is my favorite.
London Broil Sandwich
I heart heart heart this one! With all the toppings sans jalepenos. Butcher Boys has the best by the grandstand.
Double decker Ferris Wheel
I sincerely think this is the creepiest ride at the fair. It goes ridiculously fast for how old and tall it is!
It's not a fair without a rodeo. A truly all-American sport and now that it's free anyone can go!
