The Wisconsin State Fair opens its 157th season today, beginning its 11-day run in West Allis.
Fair spokeswoman Patrice Harris says the event remains focused on family-friendly fun, with a variety of activities, rides, live music, and agriculture. The state's largest industry features prominently during the fair, with over 10,000 animals making their way through their. Harris says it's an excellent educational opportunity for the entire state.
Of course, the State Fair is also about the food. The iconic cream puff will of course be available for fair goers. Harris jokes that the treat may be a little sinful, but those consumed at the Fair can't be bad for you.
The State Fair runs through August 10th.
