  • Went for New York State Fair. Wasn't as hot, but the parking and signage for parking is non existent, or generally not helpful. For example, there were several lots available, but most of them were for handicap parking. Shouldn't there be signage stating the lot was for handicap? We only found out once we drive in, then must make a U-turn. We arrive very early, but still must park probably a 1/2 mile away. There was a new building available to see the inside, but it was pretty pointless. Absolutely nothing was going on inside. There were a few vendors but it wasn't anything more than maybe a snowmobile and a sign advertising a place to go to use yours. Not very exciting. The food vendors didn't have any options for those with dietary issues, let alone any information on ingredients. The only thing safe to eat was a baked potato. We did find a small train exhibit and a vendor who offered 3d scanning and models, so that was cool. Also the goats were good to see.
  • So much fun! I love going to the Fair! So many delicious types of food to try and so many flavors of wine slushies. Seeing the different animals is great! Horses, cows, pigs, goats, giraffes, zebras, chickens, ducks and a kangaroo too! Lots of cool things to see! Sand art and butter sculpture are always worth checking out! Plus the rides of ton of fun! I recommend doing rides at night when they are all lit up and pretty!
