Governor Pat Quinn is pledging to “eat his way” through the Illinois State Fair… and he’s almost certainly not alone.
Quinn has cut the ribbon to open the 2013 State Fair, where food is always one of the highlights. One of this year’s new offerings is an Oreo cookie wrapped in cookie dough, then batter-dipped and deep-fried.
The fair also boasts a big spotlight for Illinois agriculture, and a daily parade featuring the popular Budweiser Clydesdales. The fair runs through Sunday, August 18th.
