WAUWATOSA-If being stuck in the hospital is preventing kids from getting to the Wisconsin State Fair, then bring the fair to them.

That's exactly what they did Tuesday afternoon.

Therapy dogs dressed up as cows and other barnyard animals.

Fair food and games were also brought to the patients so they could have some fun and take their minds off their medical challenges, if only for a little while.

"It's nice," said Amie Breniman whose daughter is a patient. "There are kids that are stuck here for a really long time. It's nice to give them a taste of the outside."

This is the fourth year the State Fair has come to Children's Hospital.
