Fair Food Fare

The promenade was lined with our favorite fair food at the Hendricks County 4-H Fair: lemon shake ups, corn on the cob, elephant ears, pizza on a stick and turkey legs. The 4-H Cafe offered the county favorites: ribeye sandwiches, pork burgers, grilled cheese and shakes.

The Conference Complex showcased 4Hers’ entries including decorated cakes, cookies and candy plus, beautiful vegetables. The highest bidders at Sunday’s Extension Homemakers Auction enjoyed the tastes of Hendricks County 4-H. Plus the Pioneer Day baked fruit pie winning peach pie was paired with the winning homemade ice cream and devoured by those who made a donation to Sheltering Wings.

On July 18, fair goers were given the opportunity to bring non-perishable items for the Hendricks County Food Pantry Coalition. Donors were given a ticket to the Indiana State Fair.

Several vendors offered new items during this year’s edition at the fair, including walleye tacos with homemade slaw and chocolate dipped cheesecake.

Everything that touched my lips was delicious. My personal favorite was A Cup Above Coffee Catering ’s new item, Affogato. The coffee ice cream and espresso was perfect on a hot, humid day. “Fair” warning with two shots of espresso at 4:30 in the afternoon, I was wired until 2 a.m.!
