Well I missed our local fair this year and really missed the cheese curds and corn dogs. Guess I could try making my own but not the same taste. :(

I like those lemonade drinks with the half-cut lemons in them. Then sassages. Would love to try a deep-fried Twinkie or two.

Sweet sausage with peppers & onions. I never heard of those elephant ears some of you mentioned.

think of a big irregular piece of crispy pie crust (the "ear") sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

and topped with cherry pie filling!

I forgot about the Fried Cheese curds. I only saw that type of thing once, back in OK. I'm closer to Wisconsin now, so you'd think there would be more around. I guess the local county fair isn't big enough.

Allen, I forgot about the fruit toppings. Outstanding additions (and cherry the best). We don't get the fried cheese curd thingies here.

p.s. World's Finest Chocolate was the band candy I used to be able to buy.

The Indian tacos, roasted ears of corn dipped in hot, melted butter, and cotton candy, of course!

Funnel cakes.

Although I must admit that attending the state fair back when I was about 4-5 (circa 1952-53) got me hooked on "nuked" hotdogs. The Radar-Range was new and was in the "world of tomorrow" exhibit hall - about 6-ft tall and wasn't really available for home purchase. Why knew?

Funnel cakes ROCK!

The last two fairs I have been to have the greatest pizza. I know you can get pizza anywhere, and no one has mentioned it........ but the pieces are HUGE and sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!
