great way to end the day with a bucket and have state fair taste for days

You can't make this stuff up! by Steve Slocum
Fish Tacos at San Felipe's, Food Building
This was my new favorite fair food, from last year. I wanted to get a second one, but I was too full.
Pork chop on a stick by River Rafts on Judson
The aroma draws me in from blocks away. In the scheme of things, whats another 500 calories??
Chocolate malt from the Cattle Barn and a pail of Sweet Martha's cookies
This is the first thing I have to eat every year, then I tour the barns, earn my ears at the Oink Booth, maybe take the barns tour with one of the nice FFA or 4H young people.
Daily parade at 2 is the best
I park myself in a good spot to take some photos and wait for the fun to start. I especially like it when the Budweiser Clydesdales are in town. The floats and princesses, Captain Ken's fire truck, the minature horse hitch are what I remember year to year.

Ye Old State Fair Oddities by Jen N.
Category:Attractions & Exhibits
It's displayed in the horticulture building. You'd never guess that such amazing things can be made with seeds.
Ye Old Mill
The diaramas are a kitschy, out-of-proportion treat! I never miss going on this ride!
Sending a postcard from the fair
The annual fair poster is also available as a postcard, which you can mail right at the fair so that it's cancelled with the fair postmark.
The llama costume contest
I was surprised when I stumbled across this event one year. It's surprising to me that the llamas cooperate in being dressed up by their owners. Definitely something you don't see everyday.
