Which Fair Food Will Reign?

Which Fair Food Will Reign?

For many of us, food is as much a part of the Illinois State Fair as the livestock competitions and Grandstand concerts. A new arrival for 2014 is “Bubba’s Bacon,” featuring a quarter pound of bacon on a stick.

That sounds like a contender for the Golden Abe award, in another first for the fair: a contest among vendors.

Organizers say the vendors will be allowed to submit two entries. Finalists will be named Thursday afternoon, and fairgoers will be able to enjoy and evaluate them the first weekend of the fair.

There is still a chance that old standby, the corn dog, will make it, though.
