Next best thing to the Wisconsin State Fair begins with "Fair Food Drive-Thru"
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's been 169 years of cream puffs, just about anything on a stick, and so much lively livestock. The Wisconsin State Fair has been a summer staple in our lives, except a handful of times, including this year. The current pandemic put the kibosh on the annual event. But starting today, and going through the next four weekends, a "Fair Food Drive-Thru" will take place on the State Fairgrounds.
There's also limited merchandise available for purchase. All of this is part of something called "State Fair Necessities." It's a way we can all indulge in something we know and love so well without actually experiencing it in person.
The Fair Food Drive-Thru kicks off this afternoon at 4 and runs until 8 pm. You're asked to enter from Gate 9, located at S. 76th Street and W. Pierce Street. Gates open one hour before the event actually begins. We have all of the information about "State Fair Necessities" right here, including what foods you can purchase at the Drive-Thru.
