It happens for a week every year. I don't know if it's just a Pennsylvania thing or if every state has something similar. It's basically like a fair, but indoors. There's a huge building (called the "farm show complex") in Harrisburg that was built solely for hosting the farm show every year (of course other events are held there as well). There are all kinds of different farm animals to see, a butter sculpture, rodeos and draft competitions in the arenas, and of course stands selling fair food. I suppose you could say it's a little redneck, but it's always a lot of fun. The milkshakes are to die for. There are a lot of stands with free samples of everything from spaghetti sauce to popcorn. It's often very crowded but if you're there with friends it's a lot of fun. It's something I look forward to every year.
