State Fair Food, Signs and 2000 Pounds of Butter

As promised yesterday, here’s a sampling of the food available at the Ohio State Fair.

People were generous in allowing me to photograph the food they purchased and were about to consume.

I’m sorry I didn’t get pics of the actual Roast Beef Sundae and the Donut Burger.   There is a lot more to see and eat.
