Some people go for the rides, others concerts, we go for THE FOOD! Amanda remembers fondly going to the State Fair as a child and getting so excited to have a funnel cake and then tried to make them herself at home. Darik loves the gigantic turkey legs because them make him feel like he lived during the Renaissance.
