The Illinois State Fair is August 11th-21st on the North end of Springfield, and the food is fantastic as ever. If you’ve never been to the fair before, here are five treats you HAVE to try:
1.) Vose Corndog– This classic corndog has people raving about it every year. Cripsy, meaty, and smothered with ketchup or mustard. Your choice!
2.) Prairie Farms Ice Cream– I don’t know what it is about this particular ice cream, but I have to get one every year I attend the fair. It’s perfect on a hot, sunny day. You won’t regret trying one!
3.) Funnel Cake– What’s a state fair without a little funnel cake?! Is it messy? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely.
4.) Anything On a Stick- Food on a stick screams “state fair!” Pizza, hot dogs, alligator (yes, alligator). There’s no way you can’t find something to love.
5.) Lemonade Shake-Ups- They’re sweet, they’re tangy, they’re the perfect way to quench your thirst while you walk around. If you want the full fair experience, try one!
