My favorite food to enjoy is the gelato ice cream. My favorite ride is The Zipper. And my favorite activity is watching and cheering on the contestants in the wheelbarrow races. Anything can happen and you could get disqualified at the end even though you beat the clock. Fun stuff.

My favorite food/drink at the fair is the lemonade. I really like The Slide Ride. And my favorite activity is showing off to the public my 4-H animal I have raised and talking to people about how I did it.

I really enjoy the special tacos from the 20/30 Club. And I love The Zipper too. I like the Coloma blacksmith exhibit on how they made items for people and everyday life back in the pioneer days. Fascinating.

I enjoy tasting the different foods and edible items inside the master food preservation exhibit. I also like riding on the Ferris wheel. And I enjoy watching my children show off their 4-H animal projects.

I really like the plain corn dog. My favorite carnival ride is the Ring of Fire, the giant spinning ride. My favorite thing to do at the carnival is bug everyone while I work the carnival.
