LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (KTHV) -The 77th annual Arkansas State Fair kicked off its opening day with new rides, new food, and exciting entertainment acts.
There are 50 rides in total. Three new ones come in this year for ride fanatics, but the talk of the fair was definitely the 16 new food choices.
Maple bacon funnel cake, a maple bacon corn dog, and a chicken enchilada parfait are a few of the options according to spokesperson for the Arkansas State Fair Ralph Eubanks.
Fried food on a stick seemed to be the trend; fried pie, deep fried brownies, turkey legs, and even chocolate covered corn dogs. The food vendors definitely stepped up their game, but you can't forget about the other attractions the fair has to offer.
"Wolves of the World, the Chicago Boys Acrobatic Team, the folks that bring livestock, and we've got Rally's Zoo train," said Eubanks.
The state fair is fun for all ages and offers activities of all kinds! Make sure you grab a bite to eat after you've had your fill of the rides.
