    ***Official State Fair Confessions***

    In an effort to spice up Friday confessions, I thought a State Fair theme would be fitting for the time. Everyone has a story or two from the fair. If you don't have any stories, confess something else about the fair.

    I spend a ridiculous amount of time at Stockmen's. Everybody thinks I am crazy that one of my favorite foods at the fair is the fries at Stockmens.

    I confess I don't like going to the fair.




    Eyes closed, head first, can't lose.

    I went to the REO Speedwagon concert a few years ago and it was so bad that I have never enjoyed any REO Speedwagon song the same.

    Re: ***Official State Fair Confessions***

    I understand the fair is a huge draw for the area, Just not something I've ever been very much into. Never really had a bad time there, just not something I prioritize.
    It is people-watching at its finest though.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Never been to the state fair, and my wife is trying to talk me into going today. I gotta find a way out of this.

    State Fair concerts are the worst. Will never go to another again.

    Re: ***Official State Fair Confessions***

    I once ate 8 walking tacos at the state fair to win a bet.

    We walked into the fair, saw a stand that had walking tacos and I said I could eat one of those every hour that we are here and a friend bet me $50 that I wouldn't/couldn't.

    At Stockmens, don't pay for the bigger sized beer. The small and the large cups looks different but it's the same amount of beer.

    Re: ***Official State Fair Confessions***

    i'm taking my 6 and 4 year old with their cousins and my brother. hopefully just the animal barns and some fair food and get out before the "Reunion" starts.

    looks like a great day weather wise so i am sure the fair will be packed.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: ***Official State Fair Confessions***

    We're going to take our daughter to the zoo this weekend, specifically because we're hoping that the fair will draw people away and leave the zoo relatively empty.

    The fair is not my cup of tea at all.
