Yes, the Kentucky State Fair really can be a healthy place, if you know where to look

Insider Louisville LogoThe Kentucky State Fair is famous for its world championship horse show, its Midway rides, and, of course, a menu that includes a donut cheeseburger and deep-fried Derby Pie.

It’s also become one of the healthiest places for Kentuckians, thanks to the Health Horizons section of the South Wing. In a single visit to Health Horizons, fair-goers can get a number of free health screenings, checks on key health indicators, and even pick up some great tips about ways to stay healthy, according to the latest Passport-sponsored article on Insider Louisville.

The Kentucky State Fair continues through Sunday, Aug. 28. The Health Horizons exhibits are open nightly until 9 p.m. (and until 10 p.m. this Friday and Saturday).

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) is a key sponsor of Health Horizons, and encourages fair-goers to spend some time on their health while at the Fair. CHFS Secretary Vicky Yates Brown Glisson said the 10-day event proves to be a great opportunity for Kentuckians to get checked out and learn some important health tips.
