The Iowa State Fair is cancelled this summer, but they're still giving people the chance to enjoy some of their favorite fair foods. I'm probably not going to drive to Iowa for a corn dog, but I'd love to see the Minnesota State Fair copy this idea.

This weekend (July 24-26) and the following weekend the Iowa State Fair is hosting a special event called "Taste of the Fair". Officials will be enforcing social distancing guidelines and limiting capacity but people will be allowed on the grounds to grab a corn dog, funnel cake, or other favorites - There will 20 different Iowa State Fair food vendors set up each weekend. Learn more here and check the schedule below.
