Although the glory days of fairground art passed with the last
of the true sideshows,
county fairs and carnivals still offer bits of visual interest even if most of the imagery is blandly commercial.
The images on this page are from the Lake and Kane County Fairs in Illinois, the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee
and the Rosholt Fair in Wisconsin. Plus, a bonus image from the gloriously named Temple of Food in Amstersdam.
