There is no better education in american culture than the fair midway at night. Carny's and Hicks galore. For lack of a suffient American translation of the word.. Bogan's. It was great just to stroll and people watch. With 5 tickets, I pretty much saw everything.
How does it compare to the ekka in brisbane?
I can't compare it to the ekka sufficiently because they are different and I am most likely bias. I do think that it is bigger and there are a lot more food vendors and fired dough but it misses out on the best part by not having thought of show bags. I will say that it is alot cheaper. $1 baked potatoes iwth everything, $6 pre sale entry and $5 parking. Otherwise all fair's are basically the same.
Altogether a good fair though. The best thing about this place. People come from all over new york state to come to it and it is a long running tradition.
