Facts about the fairs plus colorful ephemera bring memories of cotton candy, corn dogs, and funnel cake. There are even tips on how to garner your very own blue ribbon.

The most interesting part of this slender volume is not the collection of odd prizewinning recipes (Five-Minute Crock-Pot Burritos, anyone?), but rather the illustrations, anecdotes and ephemera that come out of the 150-year history of the state fair.
