I attend the Iowa State Fair each year and it never gets old. Although many of the sites and sounds are the same each year; instead of being monotonous, they remind me of home, my family and one of the things I love most about Iowa. I always attend the fair with my parents. They have been going since they were kids and we have a new level of excitement in introducing my young children to our favorite fair must-sees. This year, I took pictures of some of my favorite things to eat and see at the fair. See if you recognize some and enjoy this nostalgic photo essay of my visit to the 2011 Iowa State Fair.
