FAIRLEA -- Visitors from far and wide are descending upon Fairlea to enjoy what the West Virginia state fair has to offer. Vendors, concessionaires, and countless others are preparing to be serving up what they have to offer to fair-goers. Many cliché fair food vendors are there but some in attendance are some that you would never guess, including gator on a stick and deep fried candy bars some of the crazy food inventions being showcased.

Donna Simms, of the Coaches Coffee Cup, says that she “loves to do the deep fried apple pies and candy bars are awesome we just have an awesome time making them and watching people get excited when we do them and they just think its awesome, so they look forward to it coming back every year.”


Vendors say they're expecting over one hundred-fifty thousand people will be in attendance so there will be a lot of hungry bellies.
