County Fairs have a long standing history of displaying food. The Dutchess County Fair is no exception to that rule. When I ask people what their favorite part is, nearly everyone says "The FOOD!"

I'm a man of simple tastes and my day at the fair satisfied ALL of them. I even learned a thing or two about some of the vendors that provide us with the variety of healthy and not so healthy options. I'm not going to sit here and tell you there is high nutritional value in the content of a foot long hot dog, but I'm not going to pretend not to enjoy the heck out of it either!

No matter what I eat, my days always end with some soft serve ice cream, because, ice cream. It's synonymous with my childhood summer days and anything that's as nostalgic as a soft serve ice cream cone, I'm always down for!
