You Know You Grew Up Going To The Ohio State Fair If…

The Ohio State Fair kicks off today, and with the opening of the gates comes a lot of fond memories.

If you grew up going to the Ohio State Fair every summer, there are a few things that probably defined your childhood. For me, it was racing down the massive slide or eating funnel cake on the sky lift.

So what about everyone else? We asked via social media, “You know you grew up going to the Ohio State Fair if…” and the responses brought a wave of nostalgia crashing through the office.
