The NY State Fair Wants To Butter You Up
One of the New York State Fair’s annual exhibits is the iconic 800-pound butter sculpture, and unlike the fair, somethings are too good to cancel.
Each year at the end of August, thousands of people flock to Syracuse New York to attend the New York State Fair.
Among the food, rides, and entertainment, are the exhibits that sometimes acquaints people with things they don’t normally get a chance to experience.
The NY State Fair has been cancelled this year due to the corona virus, but the American Dairy association has teamed up with the fair, to give you a virtual look at the annual butter sculpture.
The 800-pound butter sculpture will be available for view on Tuesday September 1, with a live stream available beginning at 10am, on the American Dairy Association North East’s Facebook page.
In a NY State Fair press release, NY State dairy farmer Lynn Murray of Murcrest Farms, LLC in Copenhagen, New York said “Most people are looking for some normalcy during this time of uncertainty. So, we are happy to announce that there will be a butter sculpture this year,”
