Arizona State Fair

The annual fall tradition that is the Arizona State Fair kicked off recently. I prefer to check out the food stands and try to win stuffed animals, but this time I was badgered into going on the G Force ride, during which I closed my eyes and screamed the entire time.

I prefer slower, calmer rides like La Grande Wheel.

Next time I'd like to try these:

Arizona State Fair can get expensive quickly, if you like to do a lot. I suggest going on one of the discount days. If you'd like to get out of paying for parking, try parking at the state Capitol and taking the free shuttle to the fairgrounds. It'll save you $5 or $10 that you can instead use to try our fried snacks.
