Most Tri State Fair Goers Look Forward to One Thing

Food, games, and prizes. It's that time of year again. This year's Tri State Fair and Rodeo celebrates it's 90th year.

"We come every year," said Todd Benson, fair goer. "We have alot of fun with the kids. It's a great opportunity for the kids to come and have a lot of fun and it's a great family experience as well."

Benson isn't the only one that attends annually. Many have made it a tradition. Judy Willis has a tradition before attending the fair every year. "I cook breakfast burritos, and make homemade doughnuts. We all eat and come out to the fair to spend family time together," said Willis.

But what is it about the fair that keeps people returning year after year?

For most, it's the delicious, deep-fried treats that are only found at the fair. Fried cheese, funnel cakes, corn dogs, and cowboy burgers are among the favorites for the fair goers. People of all ages look forward to enjoying their favorites.

To ensure the safety of the attendees, Amarillo's Health Department will be monitoring the food booths throughout the whole event.
