It’s a tradition for T and I to attend the Iowa State Fair at least one day each year! It’s our date day or weekend and something we look forward to sharing with each other! We often do the same things at the fair…see the same things, and even eat the same foods. We’re creatures of habit and honestly ok with that! The Varied Industries Building, Pioneer Hall, and the Shoppers Mart underneath the Grandstand are always a must for us. We also enjoy watching the FFA Parade of Champions and the Governor’s Charity Steer Show. But, really…the Iowa State Fair is all about the food, right?! So, what do we eat? Well, it’s usually a lot of the classics, but I also try to taste one new item each year. It’s usually new to me, but not necessarily the fair. So, what did we eat this year?
Our first stop…literally we had been on the fairgrounds about 15 minutes was the Dairy Barn. For the last three years, we’ve split a chocolate shake! They are so delicious, rich and creamy! This year, I think we could have each put away one on our own, but we resisted.
