The 2016 New York State Fair looks a lot different after under going $50 million dollars of upgrades, demolition of the Grandstand and removal of the 1 Mile dirt race track. This opened up new areas for more vendors and an expanded Midway. Old favorites still remained as the sand sculpture was taken shape inside the Center of Progress building. This year’s theme: A Tribute to the Grandstand for 37 years of Entertainment.

Two 4-H girls take part in the Living Mannequin exhibit in the Youth Building at the New York State Fair near Syracuse, New York on Saturday, August 27, 2016.

The Youth Building where 4-H’ers from each county display their talents, research and skills was a buzz with activity. Including the annual Living Mannequin exhibit where young people model clothing they made by being as still as a store mannequin. Though, I believe the smiles got a little bit bigger as I got up close and personal with these two.

Charlie’s Famous Steak Pit has been at the Fair for as long as I can remember. One of their popular menu items are their bacon wrapped scallops being prepared above by one of the cooks.

The expanded Midway now takes up much of what was formerly the race track’s infield featured seven new rides including a double ferris wheel called the Stampede.
