The Greater Baton Rouge State Fair
The Baton Rouge State Fair pulls out all the stops each year with rides galore in the carnival midway and live music almost every night, featuring a variety of genres. Clowns and magicians amble about while fair-goers feed on delicious fair food. Plus there’s mutton bustin’, lawn-tractor pulls, pig races, and an exotic animal petting zoo. Junior beef, dairy, and goat shows also add to the agricultural theme. For your lego enthusiasts, don’t miss the fifth annual Lego Extravaganza at 2 pm on October 29. It’s a Baton Rouge tradition, this year at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales. 5 pm–10 pm Mondays–Fridays; noon–10 pm Saturdays & Sundays. $5 and up. gbrsf.com.
