Opening Day

Food, family, and fun. They could only mean one thing: the Colorado State Fair.

Saturday marked opening day for the 132nd annual Colorado State Fair. To start things off, a children's parade and a rodeo.

Of course, you'll also see the usual fair fare of livestock judging contests, animal exhibits, and a carnival.

Orgainzers hope they can beat last year's dismal attendance of only 640,000. So far, hopes remain high with good advance ticket sales.

The fair lasts for 16 days.
