This is the time of year when there are festivals and fairs in almost every town and city. For Fort Wayne, the big event is the "Three River's Festival" which will be observing it's 49th year. It runs from July 7th-15th and pretty much has something for everyone.
This year, the Cooking Channel will be coming to tape segments from "Junk Food Alley".
There, one can find the more normal fare such as elephant ears, pulled pork, funnel cakes, and lemon shake-ups.
For someone who wants a HUGE sugar over-load, there is the "Everything Elephant Ear" . . . an big elephant ear topped with a funnel cake, deep-fried Oreos, deep-fried Twinkies, deep-fried Hostess cupcakes, and deep-fried marshmallows. It is then dusted with sugar, cinnamon, and other toppings such as caramel or chocolate.
There is the more bizarre such as "chocolate covered bacon on a stick" or "chicken feet". I can't imagine paying for those chicken feet. Instead, I am wondering how much someone would have to pay me to eat them.
