A group of KW agents went during lunch today to consume corn dogs, fried potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, and of course, funnel cakes. If there is any doubt as to this author's personal favorite, check out this photo.

Some of the entertainers for the 2010 MS State Fair include Hank Williams, Jr., Boyz II Men, Ronnie Milsap, and 38 Special. General admission to the fair is $5.00 for adults, but if you go before 1:00 p.m., there is no charge for entrance or parking.

Daytime termperatures may be on the warm side, but if you go after dusk, a jacket may be appropriate.
