“Funnel cake. Because it’s a sweet, but you can trick yourself into thinking it’s healthy by getting the fruit topping.”

“Corn dogs dipped in chili with the processed nacho cheese.”

“Funnel cake with powdered sugar - classic funnel cake. It’s best after a corn dog.”

Last year they had this "german-esque" potato & sausage stuff on a big plate. It was gut-busting good.

Every sex offender in Lawrence will be there so be sure to look at the KBI Registered Offender website before you go.

Hey Alix - thank you for serving your country.

12 oz drinks full of hops or do they serve those at the fair. I've never gone to the DC fair.

Iwanttosaythis has a VERY good point! I was at the fair a few years ago and the police were there to keep an eye on this guy that was just spending the whole day "watching the little kiddies." (They suspected he was a sex offender.) Please, parents, watch your children!!! Do NOT let them run around out of sight no matter how safe it seems to you.

Favorite fair food: greasy deep fried batter smothered in powdered fruit.
