Fair Fare

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.
