When people say the state fair has something for everyone, they mean it. Along with every imaginable kind of food deep-fried to perfection, the fair has carnival rides, petting zoos, livestock shows, concerts, beer gardens and special contests and events. The Oklahoma State Fair, Sept. 12-22, steps up at Oklahoma State Fair Park, 3001 General Pershing Blvd., Oklahoma City. Look for the PRCA Pro Rodeo (Xtreme Bulls!), the Eli Young Band and Disney on Ice: Rockin’ Ever After (Sept. 12-17) featuring Brave’s Merida. The Tulsa State Fair, Sept. 26-Oct. 6, offers rodeo action, too, along with the state sugar art show, a national wedding cake competition, a fiddling contest and more. Disney on Ice also makes an appearance in Tulsa, with performances at Expo Square (Sept. 26-29), 4145 E. 21st St. For complete information on all these events, visit the Oklahoma State Fair at www.okstatefair.com and the Tulsa State Fair at www.tulsastatefair.com.
