If you're bummed about the lack of fair food this year, there have been several options around town to help you scratch that greasy itch. There's one option coming this week, though, that's from out of state.

This food truck I found on Facebook is making the trip all the way from Arkansas to sell fair food. You read that right. They're coming from Arkansas.

To say that 2020 is a year of surprises is to really undersell how crazy this year has really been. If you had told me the fair would be canceled, I wouldn't have believed you. If you had told me a food truck would come from Arkansas to Amarillo to sell fair food, I would have called you crazy.

Yet, here we are.

I think the big thing I'm learning through all of this is just how popular fair food is. In our current health-obsessed society, I figured fair food was simply off the menu for many. Once again, I have to admit I'm wrong.

Reading through the comments of the Facebook post would make you think that corndogs are some kind of holy sacrament.

Fair food is nice and all, don't get me wrong, but I am missing taking my kids to the fair this year. Unfortunately I had to miss it last year, and my daughter is finally big enough this year to ride the rides.

Funnel cake doesn't sound so bad in the middle of this pandemic.

The Facebook post lists their location and hours, and they're supposedly going to be in town for about a week.
