Having taken on the Waukesha County Fair, intrepid Lake Country Publications/NOW reporter Megan Sukovich now takes us on the tilt-a-whirlwind adventure that is the 2014 Wisconsin State Fair.
Before I bid adieu to the 2014 Waukesha County Fair, I made sure to stop by the Children’s Tent to watch the annual “celebrity” cream puff eating contest. Hosted by Van McNeil of WMYX-FM 99.1, this was definitely the event of the fair season. Pictured above are well known fair lovers (from left) the 2014 Equine Ambassador Anna Acuri, Fair Board President Jim Renn, 1997 Fairest of the Fair and Executive Director Shair Black, 2014 Fairest of the Fair Robyn Wittkopf, new Assistant Coach of the Milwaukee Wave Nick Vorberg, 2014 Fair Marshal Bob Weise, 2013 Fairest of the Fair Cecilia Heberling, and fair board member Kevin Meyer. The preliminary round ended in an exciting tie between Meyer and Vorberg, followed by Black earning her spot in the final “cream puff off” for being the winning female. Ultimately, the win went to Meyer as he finished his cream puff in only 28 seconds.
