“The best fair I've ever been to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The Ohio State fair is amazing! It's a fair and its expensive, but there is a ton to do. We took our 4 and 5 year old and we were there ALL day from noon-11PM and the kids still didn't want to leave! It's hot as heck out and I really wish they did this fair. Different month but there are some places to cool off.

“Treasured Memories!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Went with my son - we had a fantastic day. We always enter off 17th Ave. and get a photo by the big Red Cardinal... then work our way across. Have to ride the ferris wheel, swings and merry-go-round. An absolute must is the Giant Slide, I think I made it 15 times... to end the day we ride the Sky-Glider back to 17th Ave.

“Fair and Concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Two for the price of one....Visit the Ohio State Fair and enjoy an evening concert. We saw the Butter Cow and the wildlife gardens.

“A fun fair!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Ohio State Fair is always a pretty cool experience. Nothing to write home to mom and dad about if you've been to a fair before, but a great way to spend some time on a summer afternoon or evening. There are some pretty cool rides, lots of fried food, carnival games, and of course, the animals! Fun place for kids especially. Not something I would go to all week, as it would probably get old, but deserves a day trip if you're free!
