You have -- and desperately need -- to walk it
If you want to see everything the 250-acre complex offers, wear comfortable shoes. Pounding the pavement should help Fair guests burn off the approximately 14,000lbs of pork chops, 56,000 rib-eye steaks, 20,000 tons of ice cream, and 3,400lbs of smoked sausage consumed annually on the grounds. (Fair officials do not calculate total cholesterol points...but who cares?)
You're probably going to put things in your stomach that you won’t be proud of
Visitors can vote on the concessionnaires’ top culinary creations at the A Taste of the Fair competition, but don’t expect any arugula to top the charts. Nominees include BBQ pulled pork beer cheese fries; bison cheese steak rolls; deep-fried s’mores; and hot beef sundae. If you’re looking for subtle interplays of spices and ingredients, look elsewhere.
