HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—The State Fair of Virginia begins Friday, Sept. 27 and for the first time ever, it's being put on solely by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation.

8News Anchor Morgan Dean interviewed State Fair of Virginia Spokeswoman Denise Bird Thursday morning. She gave a rundown of the fair's family-friendly events and specialty food items—including Krispy Kreme sloppy Joes.

On Thursday afternoon, 8News Reporter Nate Eaton reported live from the fair on 8News at 5, 5:30 and 6, during which he got to ride the swings and meet some of the farm animals.

The event runs through Sunday, Oct. 6 at the Meadow Event Park. Tickets are available here.
