Well, we never avoided the State Fair of Texas. After the first year, DS was fine (we gave him the obligatory Corny Dog when he was 2 because we didn't ask what it was cooked in--he got hives). But who needs fried stuff anyway? There is pizza there and other stuff. We took sandwiches for DS.
I don't like fairs, but I did enjoy the State Fair. And every night when the sun goes down, there's a wonderful parade (I don't really like parades either but am very fond of this one--it's magical).
There is more to do than not do. I mean, you've gotta go on the Texas Star! It's the world's largest ferris wheel.

We are going to our local fair next week. We live in a small town and we have our own fair. It's big fair compared to the size of the town, but not a big fair compared to some others.
Anyway, we stay clear of obviously nutty vendors, and ask others the usual questions. There is one local kettle corn vendor who's there every year. They are wonderful. They have a list of ingredients hanging over their booth. They told me that a while back they changed to corn oil due to allergies (obviously anyone allergic to corn oil won't be buying kettle corn).
