I grew up in montgomery county and have been to the fair many many times.
However, I have not been in over 10 years. I now have a young baby and decided to check it out with some friends (for some nostalgia).
The actual carnival portion of the fair is full of scantily clad teenage girls. I do not know how any parent who actually cared let them leave the house.
Anyway, the food was very good. There is a large variety as at most state fairs (fried anything!) and I had some quality food.
The animals are always fun to see, especially for young children. If you have young kids, I would suggest going during the day and staying away from the carnival portion as much as possible/
