Gourmet deep fried pickles
NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING tops the deep fried pickles with cream cheese in the middle. A must have, and absolutely delicious!
Cheese Curds. The ORIGINAL ones.
A state fair staple. But they HAVE to be the ones from the booth on Dan Patch, directly across from the arcade. They are the original cheese curd booth (and the one that USED to have a booth in the food building).
And I mean corn dog. Not pronto pup. The cornmeal batter makes the corn dog far superior to it's flour batter imitator, the pronto pup.
Corn on the Cob
another staple, and a must have. It's affordable, delicious and relatively healthy!

I don't know of any other state that does this quite like we do. Get a malt or cone and watch her carve away or see what she's already done.
Ye Old Mill ride
The oldest ride still operating at the fair. Yes, the displays are cheesy, but who cares? Snuggle up to your honey, or take the kids and create a new tradition. Then get some hot fresh mini donuts- yes!!
photo booth at the arcade
our family has done this annually for at least 30 years. A relatively cheap memento of the day. See how many people you can cram in the booth and how many fun poses you can come up with.
the historical exhibit in Heritage Square
view the beginnings of the fair, get a free state fair button (from last year, but keep the collection going) great collection- then stop over to the newspaper museum and you can print your name on a real old time printing press, fold a paper hat, get the news of the day. Free press!
2010 must haves by Laura Peterson
beer on a stick
3 samples of Summit beers!!! the best way to beat the heat!
corn on the cob
just doesn't ever turn out as good at home!
Alligator bites and hush puppies
The best is fresh and cooked in a deep fryer in Louisiana at my sisters house, but these are darn good too!!
The easiest way to have breakfast and the only reason we get to the fair by 8am!

Australian Battered Potatoes
Sliced potatoes-battered and deep fried to perfection with cheese or ranch sauce on top. Or get it like me with both. Delicious!
Worlds greatest French Fries
The best french fries in the world. Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Fantastic!
Pork Chop on a stick
Grilled and tender - wonderful!
Corn smothered in butter and then sprinkled with salt. How can you eat just one!
