Wisconsin State Fair kicks off Thursday, August 2nd | News
WEST ALLIS — For the 161st time, the Wisconsin State Fair will make its 11-day run, starting Thursday, August 2nd. Crews are hard at work setting up for this year’s fair.
On the Midway, there will be 38 game stations, 10 food spots, and 51 rides, including four brought in from outside of the country!
Those special imports never seen at the Wisconsin State Fair before include the German-made “Flipper,” the “Wind Storm” and the “Stratosphere.”
The “Stratosphere is billed as the world’s tallest portable swing tower. It’s a 200-foot swing that will help riders fly about 160 feet off the ground!
There are about 80 new food items that will be unveiled this year.
“There’s, of course, some of the crazy foods — There is a ‘Fat Elvis,’ which is deep fried with bacon around it — a Reese’s peanut butter cup in banana batter on a stick,” Kathleen O’Leary with the WI State Fair said.
For the fair’s entire 11-day run, anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian after 5:00 p.m.
