The New York State Winter Fair is setting up. With rides, Fair food, and entertainment all weekend, we might actually forget it's winter in Central New York!

The Winter Fair runs February 8-10 inside the Expo Center in Syracuse. There's fair favorites like rides, food, exhibits, a kid's zone and music from local bands. Winter activities will also be held outside, including unique ice sculptures with the Winter Fair Snow Globe. Plus, you'll get a sneak peek at the upcoming state fair in the Summer of 2019.
