The masses have descended on Fort Smith, Arkansas, for the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair where over a ten-day period thousands will turn out to enjoy the rides, play games on the midway, watch concerts and livestock shows, and eat a lot of high-calorie, artery-clogging food.
We traveled to the two-state fair to find out what's new this year in fair food and what's back again. We found a lot of what we expected, a couple of new twists, and one new fair food that's almost completely calorie free.
The nine-day fair ends October 1st.
