Fair, Fun and Deep Fried Everything

My last memory of a good ol’ fair was The Hoppings in my dear hometown of Newcastle. A not so classy affair, but an unmistakeable guilty pleasure. The fried food, the rigged games and baffingly unsafe rides. *sigh* seems like fairs have the same redeeming qualities no matter where they are in the world. The Capital Ex fair in Edmonton’s Northlands Park was everything I was expecting it to be. The large expo halls had stalls for EVERYTHING. For firefighters, butterflies, trout fishing… My favourite though, the candy exhibition!

The old chocolate boxes were a favourite and was the immense PEZ collection!

I was dumbfounded by how fried and overpriced all of the food was. I know that’s the point when you go to a fair, eat bad food but have a good time.. but eeesh – I just couldn’t bring myself to do it…

Yes, you read that right. DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE. Take the most unhealthy dessert, then multiply that by 100 more heartattacks.. That’s what they’re offering to you. And the fun did not stop there! For $40.00 you can take on the challenge of…

Words cannot describe the beauty of such a burger, and the faces of those half way through, slumping in their chairs…

On the whole, an awesome experience of culinary debauchery. And having Metric and a thunderstorm top off the night… perfection.
