New Hampshire does fairs a bit differently than what we are used to in Minnesota. Think of them more as regional fairs. There is even a 4-H fair. Today we attended the Hopkinton State Fair which is an agriculture fair. It is a large fair but nowhere near the Minnesota State Fair in size or attendance and is on for only four days. But we enjoyed it.
There were a hundred food stands. However, there was not a deep-fried cheese curd to be found. And no mini-donuts, no Sweet Martha’s Cookies, no corn dog stands, and (gasp) NO food on a stick except for a few candied apples. It’s just not right.
Their fair fare of choice is fried dough. I would say fried dough is to the Hopkinton State Fair as cheese curds are to the Minnesota State Fair. They were everywhere.
