It must be some parade! The fair has the usual games and rides (for children and adults), farm animals and exhibitions and petting zoo. There are many food booths but the most popular ones being the Penn State Creamery with different types of ice cream including one called "Death by Chocolate".

The most popular and best (imo) was a "loaded hog" that contains pulled pork, cole slaw and barbeque which you can get as a sandwich or without the bun. You get more without the bun. It was delicious just like everyone said! Also good is Cowley's lemonade and carmel apples with many types of coatings including nuts, m&ms, reese's pieces, sprinkle coat and others. Some people even take their vacations specifically for this event!
