Dessert is easy - mini donuts, but to make it easier, just drop bits of batter into the hot fat and then roll them in sugar like donut holes! These can be done the night before or the morning of the event. Also, cut bananas in half, dip in chocolate and freeze (you don't even need to put them on sticks

For your starches, potato wedges, skin on and drizzle with olive oil and fresh or dried Italian herbs. Bake in the oven. Second starch - perogies - buy them made and boil them. Serve with sour cream.

Meat - as has already been suggested, hot dogs, corn dogs, hamburgers. Or how about chicken fingers?

As for your salad, you could make vegetable and fruit kabobs. You can make these ahead and either serve them cold or grill/broil them.

Hope that helps!

Salad -
How about the soup in bread bowls?

Frozen bananas are awesome!

Bread bowls are a good idea as long as you find (or make) small ones. These are mostly teenagers and there is a lot of other food to choose from!

You also see carnivals selling half-smokes, grilled sausages and hot dogs with your choice of toppings: onion (raw or cooked), cole slaw, sauerkraut, cheese sauce, mustard, ketchup. Depening where you are there are also thick-cut fried with malt vinegar. Candy apples too.

I have my own professional cotton candy machine and it is pretty labor intensive - one person would have to run it unless you make it all ahead and put it in bags.
