Virginia’s State Fair is less than a month away, and organizers are gearing up to host nearly a quarter of a million people at the Meadow Event Park near Richmond.
In addition to rides, music and agricultural competitions, the fair will offer its usual selection of junk food – corn dogs, funnel cakes, cotton candy and something new.
“This year we have deep fried butter – a hunk of butter with batter, dropped in the deep fryer.”
That’s the Farm Bureau Federation’s Kathy Dixon. She says there isn’t much call for healthier fare.
