When it comes to why people go to the Erie County Fair, the food has to be in the top 3 for a lot of people. Today, you've got a chance to eat more for less.

How many times have you gone to the fair JUST to eat the food?

There's something new and exciting at the fair just about every year, but let's be honest, if you really tried to eat it all, it could cost you a small fortune.  Those vendors have bills to pay too.

But today, they're giving you a chance to get a taste of some of the things they'll have at their stands for a whole lot less.  They'll be offering smaller sample-sized choices for just $2. They call it the "Taste of the Fair" and it's happening but it's today only (8/15/22).

They've even got the whole list laid out for you to make it easier depending on where you are in the fair!
