All events here are very well run. This has been ranked the best state fair numerous times. I have never been where I have been able to do everything offered. There are concerts going on in the evening. The have a wide variety of vendors. The carnival rides are numerous. The inside vendor section is always fun to look around. They also have various shows during the day.

There is a variety of food and plenty of live entertainment/shows. The kids section has quite a few rides and the "big kids" area has an even greater selection. The many buildings display arts and crafts of all types, as well as vendors of jewelry & clothing to one of a kind crafts. There are ample vendors outdoors as well and lots of animals/livestock for kids to see. A few hours flies by with all there is to do. At the end of each night there is also a nice fireworks show.

It is a nice, clean, save venue. The employees & security work diligently to ensure the guests have an enjoyable & even amazing time at every event. And the security that they have come help for some of the larger events like all day concert events, they work hard in the hot sun for hours, and they are just trying to do their jobs of crowd control and roaming to make sure there aren't any concert goers in need of assistance. Ultimately their goal is to make sure the venue stays safe, yet I have seen them get treated so poorly by some of the concert goers in line or in the crowd. I think they should be recognized for their hard work.

The dog show was amazing, carnival rides and games that are great for kids, lots of good food, and the livestock area is fun as well. Admission was only $6 per person, but everything else is really overpriced. I'm talking pro sports games prices, so bring a lunch and drinks if you don't want to get ripped off. We joked about someone we saw unpack their lunch, until we saw the food prices! There are plenty of free things to do inside of the fair, so having a blast on a budget is doable. The jugglers that were unicycling around was the highlight for us! Overall fantastic experience, just be aware of the prices.

It's a pretty nice place. A lot bigger than you'd expect. It's bigger than some towns I've been in. The only reason it doesn't get all 5 stars is because it's so expensive. 10 dollars to park usually. Plus the price of admission to whatever you're going to, the price of food and drinks are about 3 times what they should. The list goes on and on. You can EASILY go through 100 dollars here. THE ONLY EXCEPTION Is the Horse Racing track and Wagering Facility which is a bit more realistic whem the State Fair ISN'T going on.
