The best thing at the fair! The best ones are in the food building.
Who doesn't love spam, especially deep fried and dipped in ranch!
Amazzzzing ice cream. Me and my sister usually go back more than once each year. Plus there right next to ye old mill so its family tradition to go for a ride on the mill and then get some dippin' dots!
Yes, just a plain old carmel apple on a stick. The same ones you can get at any cheap carnival throughout the summer. Buuut they some how taste sooo much better at the state fair :)

Have seen him year after year. His show is alway new and refreshing loved by the whole family.
A great place to rest your weary body and take in the great variety of entertainment.
Pronto Pups are always a must have.

My favorite eats by Kim Boylan
If I only one thing, it's a vanilla cream puff!
Deep-fried candy bar
No explanation needed.
Cinnamon roasted pecans
So good when they are warm.
I don't eat hot dogs, but will make an exception at the fair.
Kate's Free Entertainment Picks by KJones
If you sit around in Carousel Park you can hear the show really well - and for FREE! I've heard a ton of bands this way..
This will help you enjoy the wide variety of people/hairstyles/fashion choices that the Fair has to offer. Some are a quite 'different' than you might expect. :)
Daily Parade - 2 p.m.
The daily parade is a good chance to sit down and relax for a few minutes. Everyone crowds around the parade route, so if you want a curb spot - get there a few minutes early!
Northwoods Lumberjack Show
This show is nearly the same every year, but for some reason I still love to watch. The competition is fun, and sometimes the guys aren't bad to look at either. ;)
