Fair E-tales

Having taken on the Waukesha County Fair, intrepid Lake Country Publications/NOW reporter Megan Sukovich now takes us on the tilt-a-whirlwind adventure that is the 2014 Wisconsin State Fair.

Wisconsinites still crazy for corn, even after all these ears


This weekend’s warm temperatures are sure to bring the Wisconsin State Fair plenty of golden sunshine, but there is something else besides the sun to be seen at the fair that is golden, warm, and pops out behind layers of green… Why it’s corn, of course! The New Berlin Lion’s Club is once again serving Wisconsin grown corn smothered in Wisconsin butter. For almost 60 years, thousands of volunteers have peeled, roasted, and dipped this sweet delicacy to satisfy the taste buds of many fairgoers. The five unit stand is capable of producing a total of 4,000 cobs per hour and proceeds go to numerous charities all over Wisconsin. If the cob is not for you, “corn-in-a-cup” is making its second appearance. Customers receive the corn they love, with the same number or kernels, but removed and in a cup with plenty of butter. Have you gotten an earful yet at this year’s Wisconsin State Fair?
