The Foodtastic 4... by Ellie
Even vegetable-haters enjoy it at the fair, because it can't be good for you when it tastes THIS good.
Salmon on a Stick.
Puts a little bit of class into your favorite fair food form. Plus you can wash it down with a frosty shandy.
Frozen Apple Cider.
In the Horticulture building. The best $2 you'll ever spend in your whole life, and some of the friendliest people at the whole fair. (Honorable mention in the same building goes to the chocolate wine ice-cream.)
Pickle on a Stick
This is what my dreams have been made of since childhood. The bigger, the saltier, the more flourescent-green-tinted, the better.
The Foodie's top 4 foods at the fair by ECharais
Deep Fried Pickles
I am weary, if not disgusted at the description, but with the prodding of my kids and husband, I gave them a shot. It changed my perspective...and dare I say, life. Man, these things are good..and totally worth the wait in line!
Belgian Waffle on a Stick
Imagine the best pastry you've ever had, top it with chocolate, and whipped cream, et voila...magic! This waffle is always warm, and just right any time of the day, also worth the wait in line!
Falafel King falafel pocket pita
This sandwich is so good, I eat them every day I go to the fair. The sauce is to die for, and they don't skimp on it! It also has really good tomatoes, and the falafel is king!
Eggrolls at the bazaar
Go to the egg roll place in the bazaar, and order at least 2 just for yourself. Get a cup of the fish sauce for dipping, and enjoy. These are some of the best Vietnamese eggrolls I have ever had! The roll is crispy, and super well-seasoned!
The Fair isn't complete until I... by Deanna Sandcork
Eat Cheese Curds
I dream of them all year. It has to be done! In this case it's okay to follow the crowd and "do what everybody else is doing"
See the butter heads in the Dairy building
It impressed me as I a child, and it's still fun to see. I even had mine carved in 1993 when I was a Dairy Princess! Brrr....
LIsten to a live polka band
Your toes will tap and your heart will warm as you watch the couples of all ages dance. You may even dance yourself! Good, clean fun at it's best!
See the demonstrations
You've got to check out the Salsa demonstration, the old guy who does the vegie peeler demo, don't forget your shammies, and watch a knife demo in the Horticulture building before you check out the seed art!
