Fried Everything at the Fair

KWGS News

As Tulsa State Fair food booths prove, you can deep fry just about anything. Deep fried pickles, cheesecake, pumpkin balls, ice cream, candy bars, and kool-aid. That’s right, even kool-aid can be deep fried. At her booth on the midway, Cecelia Kenna sells fried kool-aid.

She says it looks like a hushpuppy and tastes like cherry kool-aid…and it’s a popular item…she says they sell a lot. Kenna says the donut cheeseburgers at the booth are also popular, but they’ve been available on the fairgrounds for a few years, so they’re not as new an experience as fried kool-aid.

Inspectors are at Expo Square checking midway rides for safety. Every year, state inspectors from the Labor Department look over rides and scan operators’ paperwork. Labor Commissioner Mark Costello says there are five inspectors here, with two on duty at all times the rides are operational during the entire run of the fair.

Costello says there are federal regulations governing carnival ride safety, but Oklahoma also has what he calls some of the highest standards in the country.
