MILWAUKEE -- The Wisconsin State Fair has officially kicked off for the 2015 season and Studio A's Brian Kramp checked out all the action at the U.S. Cellular Loyalty Lounge.
The 2015 Wisconsin State Fair runs from Thursday, August 6th through Sunday, August 16th and there's plenty of entertainment, activities, and food to try while spending the day at the fair.
The smells of all the food at the State Fair had Brian Kramp searching for the best food with the help of fairgoers.

If you're looking to purchase anything from the State Fair, the BBB has some tips before you purchase:
Check out the company's BBB Business Review at bbb.org. If you have a smartphone, you can access these reviews through the BBB’s mobile website, m.bbb.org or via an iPhone app, available free at the iTunes store.
Prior to making a purchase, know the company's refund and exchange policy. Get the policy in writing, if possible.
Obtain the company's physical location and telephone number, in case you need to return or exchange an item after the event.
As with any purchase, it makes sense to comparison shop. Keep in mind, however, that the least expensive item may not always be the best value. If you are making a large purchase, don't be afraid to leave the fairgrounds to do some research.
Don't be pressured to buy. After the demonstration or sales pitch, walk away from the sales person to give yourself some time to think about the purchase.
Don't forget about the old-fashioned fair foods! Brian Kramp tasted some of them LIVE on Studio A:
Finally, Spin City is filled with happiness -- with plenty of rides for fairgoers to enjoy.
