The Oklahoma State Fair is finally back and open from September 16-26. The fair consists of so many fun things such as rides, exhibits, live music, Disney on Ice, carnival games, and amazing food. Growing up in Oklahoma, the fair was always such an exciting time of the year. There was nothing better than experiencing the fair activities with your family and friends.
SNU senior Brooklyn Sullivan grew up going to the fair every year with her friends. She says, “I loved to go to all of the booths and check everything out. Walking around with friends and playing all the games is what I enjoy most.” The fair has so many different booth games to play, so go and check it out this year. Brooklyn also loves the food at the fair and says that “the Indian taco is a must and so is the corn on the cob.”
The food is obviously a huge reason that people enjoy the fair. Personally, the jugs of root beer, fried oreos, and corn dogs are my favorites that I get every year. They have a variety of fried foods that are very unique and delicious. Classics like the turkey leg, funnel cake, and popcorn are always an amazing choice as well. Make sure you try out the food if you go to the fair this year.
SNU junior London Lewis attended the fair every year for the OYE Oklahoma Youth Expo. She says, “the activity I enjoyed most was competing in the ring with my best pigs. It was an opportunity to show off the hard work and dedication I had put into getting my pigs ready for the ring. I loved getting to spend time with my family during show days.” There are so many activities to participate in at the fair, which makes it such an adventure!
The fair will be here for little over a week, so do not miss out on a fun experience with friends and family. There is so much to do that you will have the best time. Due to Covid, the fair did not open up last year, so go more than once to make up for last year. Tickets are on sale online as well as at the front when you arrive. See you there!
