Each year, the State Fair of Louisiana espouses a new theme and they made their theme announcement for this year, today.

Generally, I'm a fan of the themes that espouse agriculture and more specifically, livestock. I miss the days of growing up competing at horse shows at the fairgrounds. In fact, every time I see GM Chris Giordana, I mention it. Maybe you should, too! lol

This year marks the 113th year of the State Fair of Louisiana and it's happening October 24 thru November 10, 2019.

So without further ado, what's this year's theme? It's, 'Gumbo of Fun!' which is appropriate because our fair always has the best food vendors.

If you've ever wondered how the State Fair of Louisiana affects you, here's some information by the numbers thanks to the folks at the fair:
