DC State Fair

[ 0 ] August 20, 2010 |

Finally DC has a State Fair!  When I used to live in North Carolina, the State Fair was a big deal (*funny…we would take this annual class trip to the state capital for this event) and now DC is inheriting the same local pride.  This time the fair is in the hands of the foodies in the area i.e. not quite ready for Ferris Wheels and Cotton Candy machines…  The awesome part about the DC State Fair is that everyone can play a part in the production.  How?  Enter one of the various food contests!  Enter here.  What are you waiting for?!  Those tomatoes are beautiful, so show them off and maybe take home a few dollars while you’re at it.  More Info below:
