Everett Herald: At the Evergreen State Fair, try the deep-fried Oreos

Families stood in line for roller coasters, nibbled at nachos and watched 4-H Club animal showings as the Evergreen State Fair opened Thursday.

The fair will run through Sept. 4, but will be closed Wednesday.

Attractions include a monster truck rally Friday, a Neon Trees concert Tuesday and an international lumberjack show Thursday.

Liam Sorensen, 10, enjoyed the Tilt-a-Whirl because it is “constantly spinning.”

His sister, Dusty, 7, recommended that other kids check out the “jungle” obstacle course and try the cheese curds.

Gate admission is $16 for adults, $13 for children ages 6 to 12, and free for children under age 5.

Ride and game tickets are $1 each, and rides cost three to five tickets. An unlimited ride wristband is $40.

At the fair’s opening ceremony Thursday, U.S. Rep. Suzan Delbene, D-Medina, announced she had secured $750,000 in federal money for the Snohomish County Food and Farming Center, a new resource for agricultural farmers that the county plans to construct in McCollum Park near Mill Creek.
