"More than 30 new foods will be featured at this year's fair, but five of them have made the cut to be finalists for the world's greatest county fair food contest. So on the first day of the fair we're going to judge, a group of celebrity judges is going to select one of these five as the world's greatest county fair food."

The finalists include sirloin tips, Big Acai, the “Cowboy Cone”, “Iowan Pizza” and “Chicken Parm”. Parsons says fairgoers will again have an opportunity to decide on their own which is the favorite...CCF Food02 (1) 

"You can go to any of our information booths and you can cast your vote for the food you think is the best and we'll announce that during the middle of the fair. But this year we also have a challenge for everyone. We want you to be an official fair foodie. So go to one of our information booths and you're going to pick up a special card and on that card are going to be these five finalists. Take that card to any of those five vendors, purchase their product, try it, share it, split it, whatever you want to do, they will then sign your card. When you get all five marked, bring that back to the information booth that is sponsored by the Spencer Chamber right there in front of the grandstand and you'll get a special prize. And a nice little button recognizing you as a fair foodie."

The Clay County Fair begins Saturday and runs through Sunday, September 15th.
