Kansas State Fair: It’s a wild ride, baby!

by char-maccallum-real-estate-group-inc

The Kansas State Fair is around the corner, featuring a world-class Midway, blue-ribbon animals, and activities for everyone. There will be agricultural and educational displays; carnival rides and prizes; crafts and cuisine; plus one Infamous Butter Sculpture. The fair is the largest event in the state and draws crowds of more the 350,000. The newly renovated Hutchinson fairgrounds will have three stages of free entertainment and attractions.

The Weird!
How about: a chainsaw artist, a comic hypnotist, a notorious butter sculpture, celebrity milkers, driving toddlers, and more!

The Wild!
Pig Races, an Exotic Petting Zoo, Agriland, the Motorcycle Rally and Parade, and more fill this category.

The Wonderful!
Debating champs, tractor pulls, bid calling competitors, Grammy winners, and more – the Fair has it all.
