News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — The New York State Fair is about to start its 13-day run to wrap up summer.

There are some new additions to classic attractions like the butter sculpture, racing pigs and Cornell barbecue chicken. On Sunday the 25th, a full day of “Christmas in August” events are planned at the Expo Center including a visit from Santa.

New food choices are coming to the Pizza Emporium including “Chicken and Waffle Pizza” and a “Spicy PB&J Bacon Dog.”

New trackless trains with bubble-blowing smokestacks will make it easier to get around the fairgrounds. There are also free trams and an overhead Skyliner ride.

The fair runs from Wednesday through Sept. 2. More than a million people attended the fair last year.
