Until next year: the 2010 Kentucky State Fair in pictures

This year’s Kentucky State Fair saw a decline in the number of attendees, but I couldn’t tell.

I was having too much of a good time.

I spent a weekday afternoon with one of my roommates, Samantha, perusing the exhibits and gorging myself on grease and glaze.

It was the first time I went to the fair for the exhibits and food instead of the rickety rides on the midway. It was amazing to see the diversity and talent of my state on display. I gained a new appreciation of where my food comes from, especially after I saw a piglet, a hog and then sampled some fried ham. The circle of life doesn’t get more complete than that.

Here’s a look at the sights of this year’s fair. I apologize in advance if I have misidentified an animal. I grew up in the ‘burbs, and the only time I went to a farm was on a first-grade field trip.
