Whereas some State Fairs focus on the agricultural aspects of a state, displaying animals and farm implements galore, the Wisconsin State Fair seems to exist solely for mile after mile of food stands for the pleasure of roaming cheese heads. You’ll get no complaint from me.

Did take in the 4H fashion show, where members showed off fashion creations. Good effort by the young ladies. And hung around to watch a few people hurl on the “ejector seat’ ride, and later, took in the Happy Together music tour (see separate post).
