Kids ages 1 to 80 checked out Bug Ology’s Bug Bar on opening day at The Big Fresno Fair, clearly among Wednesday’s highlights.
Many stepped up to try eating a bug. A popular description: “Cardboard at first, with an earthy finish.”
But not 80-year-old Carol Baggett of Hilmar: “The only time I would eat one is if I were lost.”
Food (more than bugs, trust us), carnival rides, livestock exhibitions, music and more continues daily through Oct. 15.
Never miss a local story.
