Fried food is one of the biggest draws for people to attend the fair and there are plenty of dessert booths for those with a sweet tooth.
One dessert that is popular is sold at the Zanesville Band Boosters Waffle stand.
“It’s a waffle wagon booth, we basically sell waffles to raise money for the band for the various activities that we would be doing,â€ said Jon Dietz, a Zanesville High School 2012 Graduate. â€œWe are basically trying to pay off the uniform fund right now and then we will also have a Disney trip that is coming up that we need some help with.”
The current uniforms the band wears cost $40,000 two years ago and uniforms need to be replaced every ten years. Jon and his fellow 2012 ZHS graduate, Andrea Malek, say there are a lot of unknown costs to be a part of the band and if you want to help, stop by their tasty stand!
â€œWe always have people coming to our booth saying that they come to the fair every year just to get our waffles because they can’t find anything else like them,â€ said Malek. â€œAnd they are just really delicious.”
One waffle costs $1.25 and a bag of three go for $3.50.
