10 Great State Fairs For Deep-Fried Fun (PHOTOS)

Hot, battered fun, fried up and served on a stick. There's no better place than a state fair to enjoy a corn dog and the dog days of summer.

But don't limit yourself to just traditional fair fare: With vendors pushing the limits of what can be deep- fried -- from Coke to ribs -- sizzling new frontiers await. After you've eaten your fill, enjoy more old-fashioned fair fun by cheering at the pig races, admiring prize Holsteins or riding the Tilt-A-Whirl.

Join the festivities at these blue-ribbon-worthy state fairs.
