I go to fairs with mostly just one thing in mind - FOOD! And this year's Arkansas State Fair had some of the best food in years. Gone were the old wimpy red hot dogs - in their place were sit-down meals served in a restaurant, great barbecue, roasted turkey legs, and (YUCK) fried Oreos! Plus, I could get a good selection of soft drinks and real squeezed lemonade.
I was pleasantly surprised at this good food quality and plan to return next year. It's too bad that much of the food came right back out of your stomach after riding some of the rides!
