Colorado State Fair

The Colorado State Fair, brought to you by the Colorado Dept. of Agriculture, is going on right now! (through Labor Day weekend). The Fair, located in Pueblo, Colorado, offers fun for all ages. In fact, the slogan for this year’s Fair is, “It’s a Party!” There’s live entertainment, food, rides and games, ag expos, and much more. Some of the interesting attractions at the Fair this year include a dog show, an agricultural pavilion, a gigantic fruit sculpture, an alligator show, a strongman competition, a world-record-holding juggler, a lumberjack show, mutton bustin’, and even pole vaulting. You’ll also find over 300 commercial exhibitors; lots of free goodies; and of course, lots of animals! So even if you’re a city person, head down to the Fair and teach your kids where milk comes from. Also, this Sunday, 9/5, is a special Fiesta Day.
