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.
Chocolate Covered Frozen Banana with Sprinkles
The Ribbon (potatoes fried) with Cheese and Ranch Dressing.
