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!
My favorite places at the Fair by Deanna Thompson
Category:Attractions & Exhibits
Creative Activities Building
I love seeing what people have made..both in food and clothes and everything. A tradition for many years
I have always gone to at least one Grandstand show for the over 40 years I have been coming to the State Fair. Saw Sonny & Cher to Garth Brooks to The Mills Brothers to Carrie Underwood this year!!!
Again, have seen great acts there and always go every year to at least one show there.
Heritage Square, Grandstand, International Market..lots of shops all over the place. Have gotten lots of fun stuff over the years!
Granny's Faves by Deb Johnson
I spend a majority of my time at the Bandshell listening to all of the awesome music...newcomers to has beens.
Must have at least one bucket per visit...why doesn't it taste that great at home??
Love walking through the grandstand to look at all the items they are selling
Always pick up that Giant Rice Krispie bars to eat on the way home, and many other items "buy one get one free" that I really don't need but what a bargain!!
Unforgettable Memories by Debbie B.
Home Depot Workshop
Every year my daughter and I enjoy building a project together. (butterfly house, airplane, boat...)
A classic since I was a kid. Now I take my daughter, and love hearing hear "squeal" as she passes by the microphones.
Miracle of Birth
We enjoy seeing the cute baby animals being born, taking their first "wobbley" steps and nursing from their mothers.
Little Farm Hands
Great fun watching my daughter planting the seeds, milking the cows, and driving tractor...
