NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- There are plenty of new attractions this year at the New York State Fair, including the Taste New York tent where you can try New York produced foods and see the new state fair museum.
The food ranges from the new southern chicken donut sandwich to the popular one dollar baked potato.
At the Midway, families can take advantage of the $25 ride all day special.
State Fair officials say they're looking forward to the next 12 days.
"It seems like the year went by in a hurry. There's a lot of anticipation with this year's fair, as with previous fairs. A lot of new things here this year, new exhibits, new rides, new foods, so we're excited about unveiling it all to the public," said New York State Agriculture Commissioner Darrel Aubertine.
