The Muskingum County Fair is in full swing and there are many must have treats.

With thousands visiting the fair each day, everyone is going to have their favorite food.

"Rigatoni and meatballs, as long as it’s from the canastraro pasta shop, it’s delicious, their pasta is amazing, their meatballs are huge, it fills you up," said one fair goer.

"I really like caramel applies", said another.

You can find pretty much anything your stomach desires, from corn dogs to cotton candy, they have all your fair food favorites, they even have chinese food.

Waiting in line for a ride? The Zanesville Athletic Booster Club is walking around selling sugar covered waffles.

"We’re walking around selling the Zanesville band waffles from the waffle wagon to help raise money for uniforms and to go to Florida," said one Zanesville band member.

Deep fried desserts seem to be really popular at the fair this year, you can deep fry pretty much anything, from smores to twinkies, you can even deep fry strawberries.

Deep frying desserts is pretty simple, first you dip the food of choice into the batter and then toss it into the deep fryer, about two minutes later and you have a delicious dessert.

Can’t pick one favorite? You’ll have plenty of time to try them all with the fair going on all week long.
