|Rutana Concession's Hot Apple Dumpling Booth|
The highlight of the night was a fantastic Rutana Apple Dumpling. They're always good, but for some reason this year's were really great – hot, fresh and huge. (We get them without ice cream so we can enjoy the extra sauce we requested.) The girls in the booth were super-friendly and quick too.

Of course, a trip to the Fair means Midway Oh Boys for dinner. After inhaling mine, I was sitting on a bench (listening to the Roadhouse Band) when I felt a tap on my back. "Was it worth it?" asked a gentleman sitting on the bench behind me.
It seems he and his wife were from Ashland, and were trying to decide whether to have Oh Boys for dinner. "If you're looking for an unbiased opinion, I'm the wrong guy to ask," I laughed. "I eat these all the time!"
I convinced the couple to give Oh Boys a try, and they enjoyed them. "There's nothing like this down where we live," he added. He told me that the next time I'm down around Wooster, I have to get a pizza at Coccia House. He says they're fantastic – a really, thick, delicious pizza.
Anyway, here are a few shots of the Fair.
