The largest traveling roller coaster in the U.S. was shipped in. ("Easily collapsible" is not among my favorite coaster traits.)
All of the crooked carnie games one could desire.
Over 350,000 Cream Puffs were sold. (You can buy them by the six-pack.)
A stomach full of sugary treats and gravity-defying, cyclone rides.
Live music, live dancers, live art, gypsies, tramps and thieves.
Beer, wine, booze, caffeine, nicotine, chocolate and Aspirin.
Aretha Franklin and Vanilla Ice.
Chair massages and human massages.
Racing pygmy goats wearing tutus.
A 4 1/2 hour set by a Neil Diamond tribute solo act.
The dairyland's finest bovine specimens and ALL of their by-products.
Swine, poultry, sheep, rabbit and kangaroos.
Over one million people in attendance overall. (Not including the vendors)
Deep-fried mad scientists.
A gluttonous nightmare.
A true test of wills in the best possible way.
A temptuous Neverland of dreams for all ages. No neckties allowed. Bring your wallet and childish wonder. Truly a 'Best Of' Wisconsin. Good show.
