I always looked forward to attending the Skowegan State Fair in Maine. I have long ago memories of the Alligator Man and a contortionist avoiding being pierced by swords while sealed in a coffin. Wish I had taken photos back then, but I do have some from the mid/late '90's from what was billed as the final tour of the last traveling sideshow in America. Most of the attractions were displays, but there was a 2 headed cow, a bearded lady AND a fat person to gawk at live and in person. As you can guess, the hefty feller aspect was not a rarity on the state fair midway.
