Strange? Perhaps, but of course, there's a story behind that... When I used to live in Wichita, the State Fair in Hutchinson was a regular must-do for my friends and me. We eagerly looked forward to bierocks, the Old Mill roller water boat ride and a view of the annual butter sculpture in the Pride of Kansas building. Yes, there was something a bit kitschy about it all for us, cool twenty-somethings, but then again, we always had fun.&nbsp; Thu, 19 Sep 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/19/The-State-Fair-is-a-Great-State-Fair/3075/ Kansas State Fair Inspires Memories http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/22/Kansas-State-Fair-Inspires-Memories/3065/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/KansasStateFair.jpeg'/><br/> Jars of jam with blue ribbons, tomatoes so juicy you can hardly resist, and the Olde Mill ride all make you think of the&nbsp;Kansas State Fair.
