TIMONIUM, Md. (WJZ) — It’s back–the grand finale of summer before it’s back to school. The Maryland State Fair is officially open.

Jessica Kartalija has a look at what’s new.

The Maryland State Fair in Timonium is in full swing.

“We come to the fair because my girls like to ride the rides. You get a wristband really cheap and you can ride rides all day long. They stay until 11,” said Stacey Phares, Pasadena.

Plenty to see, and a whole lot to eat. If you like it fried, you’re flying high.

“You’re going to take it, dip it in the batter, put it all the way in and put it in the fry lighter. There you go,” a vendor instructed Jessica.

With tough competition taking the cake, and what Melissa Grimmel calls the “Super Bowl for the 4-H.”

“This morning was the market lamb show, and I had him since about May and raised him and worked my tail off and we ended up winning. So I’m still on cloud nine,” Grimmel said.

Of course, you have the traditional standbys at the fair: the food, the rides, the excitement and all of the animals. This year, the fair is going hi-tech. They have their own app with everything you need to know.

“I believe in trying to be as much on the cutting edge technology as we can,” said Max Mosner, President, Maryland State Fair. “That’s our goal: to have something for everyone.”

With new things to see every day, it’s one place you don’t want to miss.

There are also three big concerts: Carly Rae Jepsen, Fallout Boy and Three Days Grace.
