What’s not to love about the State Fair? There are rides and horse riders, just about any on-a-stick treat you’d be willing to try (as well as a few you wouldn’t) and all sorts of photo ops. Almost 2 million visitors attend each year. Even Santa Claus made a special visit from the North Pole. Here are some snapshots from State Fairs present and past.
