Every August, the winter state of Wisconsin turns up the heat to keep the festivities going at the Wisconsin State Fair. This yearly state party is held every summer at the Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb. First held in Janesville, Wisconsin in 1851 with an estimated attendance of 18,000 people, the fair moved from city to city until it finally planted its home in West Allis in 1892.
Like most state fair, the Wisconsin?s version is firmly rooted to its agricultural roots. The activities include cultural shows, concerts, and food exhibits, such as the famous cream puffs, which is one of the many reasons for the record 876,020 attendance in 2010. Other attractions include carnival rides like Spin Out, Super Loops, and Yo-Yo. In 2010, the fair inaugurated the Come 2, a 40-foot roller coaster.
