LaRue gears up for State Fair

From cupcakes, fudge and hams to cattle, rabbits and crafts, many LaRue County residents are getting ready for the state fair.

Several local businesses are going to set up shop at the Kentucky State Fair including Sugar Fashion Cakes, Sarah Anthony, who said it’s her first time at the state fair as a vendor.

“This is our first year doing the state fair,” Anthony said. “We’ve been making around 1,000 cupcakes a day.”
