    Iowa. They passed a fucking law 5 or so years ago preventing schools from starting before the fair ends in order to protect it.

    And the Broadway musical was based on Iowa's, so we have that going for us.

    • Yeah Iowa's is the gold standard.

      I used to love the MN State Fair I would go multiple times for hours, even worked there...now I honestly cannot stand it for more than an hour. It is a microcosm of everything wrong with this country.

        • I am not sure I could watch because compared to the real world it is kinda boring.

          • I still love the fair but even before I moved away I only went every 2-3 years to keep it from going stale.

                • So that black Texas principle suspended for supposedly teaching critical race theory? He has a white wife and was asked to take down anniversary photo of him hugging his white wife because it makes people uncomfortable.

                  I hope he bankrupts Texas, piece of **** state

                      It's a ****hole. And it's becoming a bigger ****hole every single day. Can't wait till billy bob gets his 12 year old daughter preggers and she doesn't find out till after 6 weeks. That's going to be a great story. Oh, wait, that **** happens all the time in the South.

                        If you want to be lonely and see something sad go to a state fair in New England.

                        My theory is state fairs vary directly with high school football. It's probably the same people. I'll bet all the Deep Fried States have amazing ones. HOnestly after the Plague ends I would love to go to a midwestern state fair.

                        However, I did go to a tractor pull in CT and it was awesome.

                          Hopefully billy Bob drives daughter to another state for her abortion and then billy Bob gets sued and loses his trailer and 19 guns

                            From what I heard today, most women don't even realize they're pregnant until after six weeks.
                            What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                              Lol you just realized that today? Yeah. Periods can be a little late.

                              it means virtually no abortions at all because by time time you’re late and make the appt to verify you’re over six weeks

                                This musical is awesome and Ann-Margaret never looked so... um... datable.

                                OTOH, Pat Boone is a useless dweeb. Shoulda been Elvis.
