Over the next week and a half, about 300-thousand people are expected to visit the Alaska State Fair, which kicks off in Palmer today [Thursday]. Fair activities range from carnival rides, exhibits of giant vegetables, and face-painting, to live entertainment. Vendors will be selling food -- sweets galore -- as well as art, clothing and much more. Steve Victors, of Big Lake, owns Alaska Wildflower Honey. He’s president of the Southcentral Alaska Beekeepers Association which met Monday night to talk about their booth at fair.
