My mom likes the harness racing & I like the food demos. The Recipe Trail sounds like it’s up my alley. Can’t wait to do it this weekend.

What is your favorite fair attraction? – it is all of them. I love walking around and checking everything out. I have to go thru all ofthe animals and then the midway and go across to the 4-H projects and the Pioneer Village then back to the other side to check out anything I missed the first time over there and usually back to the other side t odo the same thing…Love the state fair.

We love to go see the animals, go to the FFA building for the kids to play, go to see the antique tractors, go see the goats at Goat Mountain, and eat pork burgers and pineapple whip!

The 4-H projects and pioneer village are4 my favorite.

7 Jenny K. August 8, 2013 at 12:44 PM

My favorite attraction is a tie between the rides and the food. Being pregnant this year, I am going to just have to focus on the food. :)

8 Meg August 8, 2013 at 3:42 PM

I love the Ribeye steak sandwiches and corn on the cob!

I love lots of different things about the fair. I like taking the kids to ride the rides cause they have so much fun. I love looking at all the animals and the crafts, and enjoying some cool air when it’s hot out. I also love the food. Elephant ears and fried veggies are my favorites. :)

Fair animals are always our favorite ~ all of them!

Visiting our county fair is an annual treat. Visiting the state fair has been on our bucket list for years. Animals, 4H displays and homemaker exhibits are what we want to see!

13 Kim K. August 8, 2013 at 4:37 PM

I love eating all the crazy food and looking at the animals!

14 Laura August 8, 2013 at 5:14 PM
