10 things not to miss at the Maryland State Fair [Pictures]
Like anyone really needs to be convinced to go to the Maryland State Fair.
Like the fact it has been going on for more than 130 years isn't reason enough. Like the fact that it celebrates the joys of life in the Free State -- from blue crabs to yellow corn on the cob, from local music to local history -- isn't more reason enough. Like all the midway rides, fried food and irrepressible fair atmosphere isn't more reason enough.
Fine. For the few of you who still need convincing -- or for those who don't want to miss anything -- here are 10 surefire reasons to check out the 132nd Maryland State Fair.
