If you love traveling carnival rides and deep fried food, Lakefair is the place for you! The Capitalarians have been putting on this event for over 60 years. A scholarship for local high school girls, crowns one as a queen each year. It features with a great parade on the Saturday. Finally it is capped off on Sunday night with fireworks with the lake and capital campus as the backdrop.

There are local food vendors set up on Water street, providing such fare as the famous (or infamous) Demoburgers, cooked by your local Democrats.

Held in the middle of every July, see more details and a calendar of events at the Capital Lakefair Festival web site.
