This year's food at the Yuma County Fair


YUMA, Ariz. (KSWT News 13) – When the Yuma County Fair comes into town, one of the main attractions is the food.

Whether it's fried, barbequed or baked there are plenty of options to keep you from going hungry.

Yumans can expect all of their usual fair favorites, like sausage on a stick, fried funnel cake, cinnamon rolls--and you can't forget the Navajo's tacos.

Yesterday alone, a funnel cake stand sold more than 300 dishes to customers. They say they don't expect the rest of the week to be any different.

If you're looking for more of a hearty meal, a king-sized drumstick or a Rotarian Walt Kamen sausage will do the trick.

But make sure you save room for dessert.

You can satisfy your sweet tooth with caramel apples, cotton candy, ice cream, or Indian fry bread garnished with honey and powdered sugar. 

The best part is that you can feel good about eating all the delicious food because the money made goes back into the community.

Drew Pilkington from the Yuma Rotary Club tells KSWT News 13 the tri-tip tradition started in Yuma.

Pilkington also said the money made off tri-tip sales is used to provide scholarships and funding for other non-profit organizations. "It all  goes right back into the community," Pilkington said.
