Colorado State Fair and Rodeo

When: Aug. 28-Sept. 7 2009

Only at a state fair can you find a goat propping itself up on a gate, staring Zen-like into the distance. You may soul-search by gazing into the rectangular pupils of such a meditative animal, but there are more exciting things to do now that we've reached the halfway mark of the Colorado State Fair and Rodeo, which started Aug. 28 at Pueblo's Colorado State Fairgrounds (1001 Beulah Ave., coloradostatefair.com). Beyond yogi goats, a fair is only complete with screechy, rickety rides, funnel cakes covered with breathable powdered sugar, and the best people-watching worth paying for. And in the next few days, you can catch music by 3OH!3, Foreigner and Darius Rucker. The fair wraps up Sept. 7 and opens daily from 10 a.m. to midnight, with admission $8 on the weekends and $5 on the weekdays. (Concert tickets run $20-$25 and include fair admission.) — Edie Adelstein
