Today marks the first day of the 2009 Kansas State Fair – and we couldn’t be more pumped for this year’s festivities.

With grandstand acts like Huey Lewis and The News, Heart and GG’s personal favorite, the Naked Brothers Band; incredibly bizarre, but delicious food choices; and unbeatable people-watching opportunities, the fair is our favorite Kansas event year-in and year-out.

If you’re planning on heading to the fair, make sure you bring your digital cameras and camcorders. We want to see the photos and videos you’re capturing, so after you upload them to Flickr and YouTube, make sure you tag them with “KSF09” – the official tag for this year’s fair.

Our team is heading up to the fairgrounds on Monday evening to partake in some delicacies and experience the hilarious hypnotist.
