So I went to the Alaska State Fair over the weekend. It was pretty much like any state fair with animals, produce displays, sewing and handmade crafts and baked goods. There were shows, a midway and lots of food. But it struck me that while Alaska is the largest state in the Union area wise, it has a very small population. And it is not easy to travel from various locations within the state. All that to say, the fair was smaller scale than I was expecting.
