Looking for fun for the entire family? The fair has you covered!

The countdown to the Atlanta Fair is officially on. That means all the rides, prizes and fun you can think of are returning this Friday, Sept. 30 and will run through Sunday, Nov. 6. Of course, we can’t forget about what I really go for – the food! Everything from funnel cakes, cotton candy, candy apples, popcorn, chicken on a stick, hot dogs, burgers and fries, fresh squeezed lemonade and so much more will be available! I can’t tell you the last time I got on a fair ride, but I can definitely tell you the last type of fair food I ate – it was a funnel cake with strawberries and extra whip cream. OK, we’ve gotten way off subject and my mouth is watering just thinking about it, so let’s move on.
