On the day of the opening of State Fair, Dana Sherwood and The Black Forest Fancies will be hosting an old-fashioned, country fair style cakewalk with a twist. Traditionally, a cakewalk is a party game similar to musical chairs in which the winner of each round is rewarded with a cake. In their version, a barker will direct the players to live musical accompaniment as they make their way around a series of decorative mats depicting barnyard animals, and the winner will be invited to sit in the prize cake. Participation is open to all. Audience members are encouraged to play at the start of each round.
