LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Wednesday was WDRB Day at the Kentucky State Fair, and a great turnout kept the WDRB news team and Snowfox busy all day and into the evening.
The WDRB booth had plenty of magnets to give away, along with chances to win prize packages.
That wasn't the only attraction at the fair -- The horse show brought out more crowds, and Freddy Farm Bureau greeted those who turned out.
Meanwhile, the new food item that's still garnering all the attention is the Sloppy Joe donut. It's a Krispy Kreme donut, with Sloppy Joe, onions, and pickles. It's expected that 2,000 of them will be sold by the end of the fair on Sunday.
Don McKenna, donut burger manager, explains, "The fair, really, they saw it as another event and they asked us to develop a product and come up with it, so that's what we did." He says the Sloppy Donut has been selling well, and the donut burger has only increased its sales.
Other vendors have been doing well, too. "It has been really good," says Sally McCollum of M&M Homemade Ice Cream. "Saturday was our biggest day yet, Sunday was our next biggest, and after the concerts, a lot of times people come through just to get a little bit before they come home.
