Ah, the smell of fried dough, the squeals of hundreds of kids and adults on one of the many thrill rides and the carny barkers on the midway. This can mean only one thing, it's fair time!
On September 13 and for the following eight days over 130,000 people will invade the Tri-State Fairgrounds and take in the sights, smells and thrills of this year's fair & rodeo.
Along with the corn-dogs, cotton candy and fried pickles there's your chance to win one of the many large stuffed animals on the midway. Not only are the games a great place to hook up with your friends, it can also be a nice break, after eating a big plate of chili cheese fries, before you tackle one of those rides that will end up tossing your insides around like a blender.
But, keep in mind, most of those games are designed so you can't win. Here are five midway games that you're sure to lose and the reasons why.
