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!
How to blow my diet! by JR - Portland, OR
By the cone, not in the bucket. Hot, fresh gooey goodness.
Not sure if Tiny Tim Doughnuts are still there. But who cannot help but love cinnamon and sugar?
Takes me back to my college days. A&W cannot touch what is offered on Commonwealth Avenue!
1919 Root Beer Stand.
You have to wash all that down with something!

Walking the streets
People watching, esp children at their amazment of what they see. I will be taking my 8 yr old granddaughter this year. I used to take my kids as young as 4. Must be able to walk, not carried. I use my camera and take random shots of the gardens, people down the street, displays, etc.
At least 3-4 of those in my diet for the day. PINEAPPLE!!!! I figure a 30 minute walk takes care of each cone.
I love going to the levels of the grandstand outdoors and people watch. You can see for a long way from up there. I get great photos of the whole section of the fair grounds.
It is awesome to see this each year. I come from a rural area and grew up in SD with the animals, but the action of moms and babies is a wonderful sight to share.
