I bring to you a series of posts about the fair. You will feel like you are almost there. The first post is about the food. A true fair person would have eaten the food and told you how fantastic it is, but alas, I can only show you what looks interesting. I am just a tiny bit afraid of fair food. If this gets you REALLY hungry, the fair is running July 13-August 12. You can try it for yourself.

Special treat on Thursday nights at the Fair: it is food truck night! The trucks come in at the entrance nearest the Hanger and for Food Fare Truck Thursday. You can find out which trucks are at the Fair on which Thursday here at this Register article by Nancy, Luna, Fast Food Maven.
