SALT LAKE CITY — Booths and carnival rides came to rest in their designated areas. Food carts rolled in, and pens were set up for animals.
"After 158 years, it's still a completely new fair every year," said Judy Duncombe, director of the Utah State Fair.
Duncombe said the variety comes largely from Utahns' participation in events such as the Living Arts exhibit, where people enter their jam, photographs and knit items. It's one of her favorite events of the fair.
“I’m just amazed at the talent of the people of the state of Utah," Duncombe said.
Among this year's highlights is the return of the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show and the state fair debut of Great American Duck Racing, she said.
"We've had racing pigs (and) we've had racing goats, but this is the first time we've had racing ducks," Duncombe said. "I'm looking forward to seeing that show and having people enjoy that."
