Thursday on Lake Effect: A Wisconsin State Fair Special

Thursday's Lake Effect comes to you from WE Energies Energy Park at the Wisconsin State Fair:

We get some perspective on the history and enduring importance of the State Fair from Wisconsin Foodie Kyle Cherek, plus learn about Abraham Lincoln's appearance at one of the first Wisconsin State Fairs.  Later, how the Wisconsin 4-H Club has evolved over time and what makes its work still very relevant today.  Gardening expert Melinda Myers talks about her corner of the agricultural world, and all of our guests talk about the proper way to eat a State Fair cream puff.
