Dutchess County Fair 2013

What are your must eats? I discovered the amazing apple crisp a couple yrs ago but never sure what to get as the main course...

      Always wanted to go to the Big E! What is it like?

      1. I like the pierogies. The 4H milkshakes are always popular (unfortunately, I can't drink milk). Most of the food at the fair is typical. My husband likes the roasted corn and the lemonade. He also likes the London broil and the rib sandwiches.

          I went and got a chicken wrap at Petes, tried little rice balls at coppolas (not good) and had the apple crisp - milkshakes said made by the dairy council and not 4H! Wonder why after all these yrs they are not running it? Brought one home for the husband and it was still good but a friend complained it was too thin.

          Applesauce - off topic but if you like pierogis - there is an orthodox church in wapp on 376 that has a Christmas fair the first week of December. The fair itself is not good but they make pierogis sauteed with onion, stuffed cabbage - best I ever had and not widely known

            Thanks a lot for the info! I'll have to look that up. I'm looking forward to checking out the fair food on Sunday.

        2. Will be going Sunday. Hilby, on his own, makes it worth-while!
