SHARPSBURG - Ag Expo visitors have devoured more than 80 pounds of mozzarella cheesesticks this week, said Robbie Sigler of Valley Concessions.
The cheesesticks are the must-have food this year, and sweet tea is the most popular beverage, Sigler said.
Burgers and country-fried ham are also perpetual favorites, he said.
"Farmers like good old country ham," said Sigler, who has been selling concessions in the area for 11 years.
Steers readied for their closeup
Tiffany Bowman, 11, and Ryan Burcker, 12, washed and brushed their steers Tuesday afternoon in preparation for that night's Beef Showmanship and Market Steer Show at the Washington County Ag Expo.
At the faucets behind the main show ring, cows were scrubbed clean. Throughout the livestock barn, people blow-dried, trimmed, brushed and sprayed the steers. The spray makes their hair stay up and makes the steers look better, Burcker said.
