The Dutchess County Fair opens today and there will be serious competition on the Fairgrounds. The best dessert and fastest pig are just two of the featured contests you can enjoy.

You know that food is amazing at the fair. It's the reason why so many of us go to the fair and if you have a sweet tooth you will have to check out what the vendors have in store for you this year.

Acccording to the Fair website, the food vendors will compete to see who has the best dessert at the fair. Rhinebeck Bank is presenting and judging the Spork Awards and there are some wild concoctions.

The Kettle Corn Ice Cream Pop, the Italian Chocolate Temptation “Chocotini”, Rajin’ Cajin Kettle Korn, Caramel Apple Milkshake and Grilled Cheesecake Sandwich are all on the list.

My money is on the Grilled Cheesecake Sandwich and I haven't even tasted one. That just sounds incredible. Judging on the desserts happens today at 11 am near the Administration building. The public can also vote using the Dutchess County Fair App and the people's choice will be announced on Friday. Don't miss the SporkRun competition this week.

Oh and just for fun, let's watch some Pork run! These guys need to stay away from the dessert selections.
