America's Biggest (and Best) State Fairs

America's Biggest State Fairs

State fairs in the U.S. go with summer like watermelons and apple pie. In the country’s early years, state fairs were held to show off county winning livestock, canning, crafting and cooking skills. Many still hold these competitions, but they’re also all about the shows, rides, rodeos and food, too. Some fair entry fees are free, but charge extra for admission to shows, rides and attractions. Others have an entrance fee as well, so check the website for ticket prices. Here’s a list of 10 of the biggest state fairs in the country. Photo Credit: justindoub
