The Ohio State Fair beckons visitors to its gargantuan grounds that house livestock shows, educational exhibits, adventurous rides, a smorgasbord of tasty comfort cuisine, and unforgettable summer revelry for all ages. Each day of the fair boasts an enthralling hodgepodge of events, from the bacon-cooking contest on July 30 to August 5's tractor square-dancing show that features coquettish farm gear performing a passionate do-si-do. Rise above the festivities during a half-mile ride on the SkyGlider, or head to the pig races, petting zoo, and pony rides in Kiddieland. The giant slide hurls thrill seekers in burlap sacks down 144 feet of delight, and daily NASA exhibits greet visitors with hands-on activities, a gravity simulator, a real moon rock, and nutritional advice from the chimpanzee who invented Tang.

Scheduled in cities across the country, the Color Mania 5K Run offers runners of all ages the chance to sprint, jog, or mosey their way across a course splattered with prismatic color. As participants wind their way toward the finish line, packs of color throwers target them with a barrage of biodegradable, cornstarch-based dyes, turning their once-white attire into a kaleidoscopic fashion statement. The race organizers don't keep track of time; the point is not to win the race but to enjoy oneself. Each participant will receive a Color Mania T-shirt, race bib, and gifts from race sponsors. Participants aged 7 and younger can run for free with a guardian-signed waiver, but will not receive a T-shirt, bib, or gifts.

HFF places family groups in separate apartment units to minimize the stress of acquiring permanent housing for young children. Last year, 139 children between the ages of 1 month and 2 years and their families moved into HFF housing, and few arrive with their own furniture. HFF aims to distribute pack n' play cribs to families in its transitional housing program to provide a safe environment for young children to sleep and play.

The Ohio Roller Girls, outfitted in their battle colors of green and black, are primed to tear up the track for the last bout of the season, ready to glissade, dodge, and barge their way through flocks of opposing skaters during energetic exhibitions. The Ohio Roller Girl’s Gang Green team skates against the Dynamite Dolls at 5 p.m, with the Charter team challenging the Destruction Dames at 7 p.m. An impressive roster of powerful sportswomen composes the two Ohio teams, replete with such bone-chilling names as McDangerous, Texas Chainsaw Sasskicker, Pippi RipYourStockings, and Mom. With doors opening at 3:30 p.m., visitors can stock up at the cash-only concession stand, fueling frequent cheering and emphatic arm movements when not frantically brainstorming their own punned-out pseudonyms.
