Much is made of the Ohio State Fair - the size, scale and sheer number of activities are enough to overwhelm even the most seasoned fairgoer. The fair is a big freakin' deal and it's partially because of some of the time honored traditions that makes our fair the best fair. One tradition - the Giant Slide. It's big, yellow, has 105 steps to the top and can launch a grown man several inches into the air. If you don't grab a burlap mat and drag yourself up those steps you haven't really experience the fair!
