The event planners for the Arizona State Fair are a literal-minded bunch. A screening of the 1962 Rodgers and Hammerstein film musical State Fair will show on October 12 at the celebration of the best the 48th state has to offer.

If watching Pat Boone show livestock and find love among blue ribbons and Ferris wheels isn’t your thing, there’s gotta be something else that tickles your fancy. Choose among mini bumper cars, the dance stylings of America’s Got Talent semifinalist Snap Boogie, and an agricultural center featuring llamas, rabbits, and sheep. Oh, and there’s a slew of concerts held in the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where Halestorm, Marilyn Manson, and other performers take the stage during the month of festivities.
