FAMILY FUN rural & urban life meet The fun includes the animal barns, youth exhibits, interactive activities, Sky Glider, Kiddie Kingdom and Giant Slide. SpinCity (the amuse - ment ride and game area) provides more than 50 rides and attractions, games and well-shaded seating areas. Making its Wisconsin debut is WonderWheel, North America's largest traveling Ferris wheel. Standing 15 stories high, it offers visibility of 10 miles or more from the top. Saz's Famous Rac - ing Pigs race several times daily at The Racing Animals Arena, while the air-con - ditioned, 200,000 square foot Expo Center and other mar- ketplaces satisfy the shop-aholic. ENTERTAINMENT 30 stages There's something for everyone on 30 stages of free acts, contests and music. The Main Stage pre - sented by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino brings national headliners to the fair (separate ticket required for all shows, includes fair admis - sion if purchased prior to entering the fair). Main Stage head- liners include country superstars Kip Moore and Alan Jackson, rock legend John Mellencamp, acapella group Pentatonix and the popular Christian group for KING & COUNTRY . FOOD unique & unusual In addition to Original Cream Puffs (the famous fair staple), dozens of other food options abound. Think of the most creative deep-fried or food- on-a-stick imaginable!
