Oklahoma State Fair

It’s Oklahoma State Fair time! The fair started Thursday and since I can remember, before I was even 5 years old, my family has gone to the fair every year! Some years we’ve celebrated my birthday or my Dad’s birthday or we’ve just gone to eat fair food, shop, and people watch! What fun memories! 


Here is a link to the main Oklahoma State Fair website…https://okstatefair.com


And here is a link to the schedule of events for the upcoming week and a half…https://okstatefair.com/schedule


What’s your favorite food at the fair? Mine is the grilled corn on the cob(only because I have celiac). My families favorites are the corn dogs from Wanda’s stand. Yes we know her name. She’s located right by the old needle around the main circle of the fairgrounds. In the past we have loved the Silver Dollar cinnamon rolls that have been there since I was just a tiny tot. Oh and the Wisconsin fried cheese. Yummy! My mouth is watering!

The Oklahoma State Fair is a tradition in the Spencer family and now the Myers family, too! When September and my birthday come around every year, we all start getting excited for the fair. We don’t really ride the rides, we go to eat the food and people watch. This year, Kiley and Brad did take the boys on the bumper cars. And years ago, we might have tried out the potato sack slide. I just can’t imagine eating all the yummy food then riding a roller coaster.

We decided the boys were old enough to go to Disney on Ice this year, too! They had a blast and sat through the whole event. They have not successfully sat through a movie or the circus, so I was impressed! It brought back great memories of taking my friends to the fair and ice capades, as a kid, for my birthday!

We never miss a year visiting our friend at the Corn Dog stand(by the needle) plus who does not want a tasty corn dog! Then, Brad and my Dad have to have a cinnamon roll from the Silver Dollar Cinnamon Roll stand. We might have some fried cheese or a funnel cake, too! This year I wanted to try some of the new and unique items that the fair was suppose to be serving, but I could only find the Red Velvet Cinnamon Roll and the Fried Gummy Bears. I decided to refrain from ordering both of them.

News Channel 4 shared these new items that should be at the fair this year, so please let us know if you saw them or got to try any of them! We would love to hear! Hope you ALL have a chance to visit the fair, too!
