Corndogs, bull riding, and rollercoasters oh my! Those are just some of the things you’ll find at the Oklahoma State Fair.
Let’s start with the food because honestly that’s the reason I go. Before there were gourmet food trucks there were carnival trucks. Big sellers include funnel cake, burgers, and fried chicken. I even hear there was a friend gummy bear, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to find it. If you go, don’t forget to hit the ATM. Most of these delicacies are cash-only.
Kids and big kids rejoice! Amusement Park season is coming to an end, but the Fair rides are up and running. I heard one kid say he couldn’t walk in a straight line after jumping off a ride that must have spun in circles 200 times. I strapped on my GoPro to a grown man joining the kids on the biggest slide I’ve ever seen.
I was impressed with the vendors’ creativity, so I featured a few in my video. The Whombatz was my favorite (probably because I’m not a parent seeing the destruction their kids could create with it). There are siz foam tools to arm yourself against your opponent. It’s designed for ages 6+, but some grown-up boys I met (former military) seemed to be having the most fun. http://whombatz.com/
I could smell the animals and saw pony rides, but somehow missed the rest. I’m sure plenty of you have never been to a state fair before, so I encourage you to watch this video and consider checking it out next year. Admission in Oklahoma City was $10 a person, but that varies state to state.
