Food at the Fairs - Part 1
A big part of the fun in going to a world's fair is the food. Sure, the shows are great, but come on, admit it - a fair is a great reason to overload on junk food. Every fair I've been to has been a torture on the feet, a drain on the wallet, and a battle for the waist line.
This is one of the many Brass Rail Snack Bars that dotted the grounds of the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. The food wasn't very good - in fact, at some of them it was barely edible - but the giant inflated bubble roofs were very visible all over the place, adding greatly to the carnival like atmosphere. While I didn't have any gourmet treats at these stands I would love to be able to walk back up to one just one more time!
Check out those prices...
