I have a good time at the Kentucky State Fair. That’s no secret. And while I love a doughnut cheeseburger, I think the thing I like the most is watching everyone else have a good time.

From those competing in the fair showing animals or in food competitions, to kids who are just there to see something cool, everyone ends up having a good time.
