Sadly, we will miss the Morris County 4-H Fair this year as it takes place the week I am out in Idaho with the little dunkers and I will miss the Blaine County 4-H Fair in Idaho too since it will take place the week after we leave. Which means the local Labor Day Carnival will get more $$$ this year as the little dunkers make me make up for them missing out earlier in the summer.

This makes me sad, because that means I must have been too deep in funnel cake powdered sugar to ever notice their existance.

Seriously, about halfway through that thing I looked like something out of the 3rd act of "Scarface".

The Lake County Fair (Illinois) meant one thing when I was growing up:

DEMOLITION DERBY

They also had pretty good music (The Marshall Tucker Band, one year) the beauty pageant and capitalizing on the popularity of wrestling in 1985 they brought in Ox Baker.

I haven't been since 1987, but it looks like it hasn't changed much http://www.lakecountyfairassoc.com/

In 1999 I went to the Delmar Fair in California, although I see that it is now called the San Diego County Fair. It was a fun time with a huge petting zoo, and a concert grounds and all that.

I may have said this before, but I remember going myself one of the days in 99 because with the paid admission they let you watch King of the Ring. That atmosphere made for entertaining viewing, which helped since the show itself was mostly garbage (yes, this was the infamous Billy Gunn winning year).

They're pretty easy to miss. They only sell them at one booth, along with deep fried Oreos and deep fried Twinkies.

Maybe it's just me, but what on earth would possess someone to consume a deep-fried candy bar, Oreo, or Twinkie? The thought of that makes me want to vomit. So does something I saw last year: deep fried spaghetti and meatballs on a stick. The line for those was incredibly enourmous.

Funnel cakes are OK, though even them I usually see myself having to split with someone else.

My real fair treats are the excellent sausage and pepper sandwich and the roasted pecans, followed by a trip to the Gravitron. It's great exercise in internal muscle control.

To each his own, but deep-fried candy bars are delicious. What they do is, they freeze the candy bars, and then coat them with like a waffle batter. After they're fried, they have a delicious outer coating, and the inside chocolate and nougat is all gooey. They are awesome.

Tenken is right, they are delicious. I first had a fried Mars bar in Scotland 15 years ago and it was amazing. It's fried in a crispy french toast type batter then dusted with powdered sugar. But, you can only eat one a year because they are so rich, they make your teeth hurt.

Mark me down as a huuuuuuge fan of fried twinkies.

I've never seen or heard of fried candy bars before, but I will definitely keep my eye out for them in the future.

We took IJ to the King County Fair on Saturday. HOLY CRAP was it hot! When we got in the car to leave at 3:00 pm it was 105 degrees. Not a bad day, though I don't really think it was $100 worth of fun. IJ rode some kiddie-rides, although she REALLY wanted to ride a Ferris Wheel, and they DIDN'T HAVE ONE. What kind of fair doesn't have a Ferris Wheel?

The ridiculous heat didn't stop me from getting a deep-fried twinkie, though. Delicious.

Hey, if we're renewing this thread, it is currently that "oooh Baby Baby" song from the Sprint commercial. I don't even know who does it (if it isn't just a jungle for the commercial). But It NEVER leaves. I am playing it at my Funeral.
