Kansas State Fair!

Kansas State Fair!

I made an entire post for the Kansas State Fair (without the concert) because we spent several hours there and ate a LOT of food I want to talk about. 🙂

When we arrived, we were in awe of how big it is.  Our local Arkansas/Oklahoma State Fair is more like a county fair, but this is bigger than the one in Little Rock. It was HUGE.

We parked pretty far away and got pretty hot walking in and we were hungry- ready for food and a cold drink.

I got an ear of roasted corn (yum!) and Tyler got philly cheese steak fries- and we shared some cajun fried pickles.

We ate them inside the swine barn- because it was shaded and we found a table and chairs along a wall.  Nothing like eating with the pigs- but it didn’t bother us! ha!

We walked around and saw the animals and then watched them showing some tiny goats. They were so cute!

As we walked around, we decided we needed ice cream, so we got some! This place was making homemade cones and dipping scoops of delicious homemade ice cream.

We walked through art entrees, saw them auction off carved wooden furniture, explored the trade show hall, and watched people playing fair games.

After the concert, we were hungry again, so I got a Pronto Pup. Everyone said this is the fair staple- it’s NOT a corn dog. The breading isn’t made of corn. It was a wheat, more like an unsweet pancake. I liked it, but I think I liked a corn dog better.

Tyler sought out an item new to the fair this year- a Roni dog- hot dog topped with macaroni and cheese and bacon.

He also tried some chocolate covered bacon and I got a Dole Whip for dessert. #treatyoself

We had a great time at the fair! It was a fun way to spend the day. Now I need to run a marathon for all the calories. ha!
