Almost 70 food vendors are waiting for you at the Alaska State Fair, and you only have one stomach. The odds are stacked -- like a Reuben sandwich -- against you. Which is why eating at the fair is all about strategy.

No one could quite believe their eyes. A 9-foot-long hot dog on a 7-foot-long bun was beached like a dead whale on the shore of Cook Inlet.  Craig Medred

Eating at the fair is all about strategy. You need a plan if you intend to eat well from each of the fair’s main food groups (carbs, food on a stick, deep-fried and the extremely important powdered-sugar group).
