After reading the Indiana State Fair thread and about the Elephant Ears... which we, here in Montana, don't have at our fair, I thought it would be interesting to learn about the local favorite fair food across the country.
Here, at the Billings, Montana fair, we have what are called Vikings... pre-cooked Norwegian meatballs (about 2" in diameter and 3-4 inches long), battered in a "special seasoned batter" and deep-fried. I can't go to the fair and not have a few... it's the only time of year that the Vikings are available. New this year were deep-fried Oreos... YUM!!! New to last year's fair were deep-fried twinkies, deep-fried snickers and deep-fried cheesecake. Everything bad for you just HAS to taste GOOD!!!

That all sounds great to me. When is your fair?

Kevin always has to have a dish at our fair. It is steak, potatoes, and beans and it is all cooked together. He loves it. I always just have to go to the beer tent nothing special just like beer. :D

The fairs here have Italian Sausage Sandwiches with fried onions & peppers that are out-of-this-world!!!! Elephant Ears and Funnel Cakes were my favorite when I was a kid!

There's actually a restaurant close to where I work that sells fair food ALL YEAR LONG! I've never eaten there - fair food is not to be eaten on a regular basis!!! :laugh:
