Hey Everyone,

I sincerely hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful summer weather we have been having lately.  The rain has stayed away, along with the humidity (for the time being), and the sun has been shining bright.  With July coming to an end sooner before later, which means that summer will be over before we all know it.  But with July’s end, comesthe Wisconsin State Fair.  This years State Fair runs from August 1st through the 11th.  If you live in the state of Wisconsin, you know that no summer is complete without a visit to the Fair Grounds.

But let’s be honest with one another.  Family friendly concerts are a great attraction.  But what do you really want to go and do at the fair?  It’s simple…THE FOOD!  Corn Dogs, Cotton Candy, Funnel Cakes, Corn on the Cob, and Beer Stands as far as the eye can see.  Come and see what they will deep-fry this year.  Whatever it is, I am sure will taste fantastic.  But what’s the Fair with out a World Famous Cream Puff.  The line is sure to be long; but that powder covered cream treat is worth the wait.

Bring the family.  Drive in circles looking for that perfect parking spot.  See the farm animals.  Stop by the carnival rides.  And do not forget to cool off by taking a walk under the Bell Ambulance Sprinklers.  The Wisconsin State Fair comes but once a year.  Treat yourself to the summer spectacular that we have all come to love.

Until Next Time,

Todd Ruedt
