It wasn't long until I worked up a thirst in the summer heat, and the best way to cool off at the Hendricks County 4-H Fair is with a traditional lemon shake-up!
They are available at many vendors and are a highly popular treat! This year they are also featuring flavored lemon shake-ups, such as strawberry lemon! It is $5 for a large drink and $3 for a refill. Not a bad deal if you ask me!My parents went with me to the fair this year, and their favorite treat is a vanilla milkshake. At just $2, it is another popular treat to beat the heat. Now finally to the gem of all fair food, the funnel cake! This deep-fried, powder-sugared goodness is my favorite of all the food there. It is large enough to share with multiple people, handmade on the spot and makes for a perfect fair day treat! Once refueled, it was back to the entertainment! I didn't want to miss the Burton Brothers Amusement Park. This fun, extensive area boasts rides and other fun activities for kids and adults, such as a Ferris wheel, high-flying swings and many other fun rides and activities. You can purchase tickets inside the amusement park and tickets are good throughout the week. This Thursday they will feature a special deal that allows you access to all the rides that day for one price!
