Wisconsin's Fair-est Season

Alice in Dairyland With Sheep Alice in Dairyland With Sheep. From Wisconsin's Fair-est Season - The Wisconsin State Fair at the Wisconsin Historical Society. "...From prize-winning cows to cream puff-eating contests, from Alice in Dairyland to marching bands, from gravity-defying rides to miracle cleaning products, the Wisconsin State Fair is a celebration of the traditional, the kitsch and the off-the-wall that is unique to the state. The State Fair has been going strong in Wisconsin for more than 150 years, but these days the fair is quite a different event than the first one held in Janesville in 1851 to showcase the state's agricultural advances."
