NOW: Wisconsin State Fair brings festivities to Children’s Hospital

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin State Fair went on the road to Children's Hospital Tuesday for the eighth annual Sounds of the Fair event.

Patients and families got their own mini-parade, music, magic, cream puffs, and even a version of the fair's famous pig races.

It's meant to allow kids at the hospital to enjoy the fair, even if they can't make the trip themselves.

"When you see the smiles on these kids' faces, and especially the parents' faces, when they can just take a minute to be happy, you know, we love bringing that joy and that experience," said Jen Puente of the Wisconsin State Fair.

They couldn't bring an actual cow from the fair, but the kids did get to visit with a dog in a cow costume.
