Kansas State Fair Begins

KSAL StaffSeptember 10, 2016

Live entertainment, stunt dogs and a new butter sculptor are luring visitors to the Kansas State Fair.

The event started Friday and runs through Sept. 18 on the Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. The fair draws a crowd of about 350,000 people each year.

Performers will include pop artists Andy Grammer and Rachel Platten, along with the classic rock band Lynryd Skynyrd.
Away from the grandstand, there’s a petting zoo, camel rides and giant pumpkins. Besides the traditional livestock and food competitions, contestants also can vie in beard and mustache contests.

Fairgoers also will be able to meet sculptor Sarah Pratt, who is transforming 700 pounds of butter into a cow and boy. Pratt has been the Iowa State Fair butter sculptor for 12 years.
