Yum-yum: One of this year's new menu items is the chocolate covered fried cherry, which is just that - a batter-dipped, deep-fried, chocolate-covered cherry. Don't forget to impress your sweetheart with these yummy snacks. You can find them at the Meatball Factory near the Grandstand. (Note: See Thursday's Life&Style for the best of this year's fair food.)
Shake it up: New on the Midway this year is the topsy-turvy Bonza ride. It will turn you in all different directions and leave your head spinning.
Germ busters: The fair has added 15 hand sanitizers throughout the grounds to help visitors beat back the flu. Find them at various dining stations and other locations.
Park and go: Bicycle racks have been added at the north and south gates. Be sure to bring your own lock.
Never miss a local story.
