Taking a week or so to go on the road visiting as many State and County Fairs that I can fit into my schedule, but I will attempt to post stories as often as I can, filled with the fun and excitement (and candy) that Fairs bring to us all. And, since I enjoy the carnival rides as well, I may be spending a good amount of time upside down!
Let the fun begin!!

Great news for those of us raised on candy corn and others who just like it (from their press release):
