State Fair of Texas Fried Food & Cooking Contests

I've heard about the cornucopia of fried foods at the fair. Any of it happen to be delicious? Fried foods are a guilty pleasure and I want to make sure I sin properly at the fair, there's just too much to choose from!

Since I'm a new transplant I'll be trying the fletcher's corny dog for the first time. You can't get a good corn dog in NYC (I've tried) so I'm looking forward to that. There's a million fried food vendors who's offerings are all blending together, so the Caribbean Shack (curry potato roti), Eat Crispies (fried chicken skin), Thanasi's (Dolmas) are standing out to me.

There's also a lot of cooking contests at the fair, has anyone participated in them? I thought I might check the competitions out and see what creative dishes people are making but I'm not sure if it's open for the public to see of just for the participants & judges. The agricultural events look like a lot of fun, too.

Looking forward to late September!
