A Day at the PA Farm Show

It was Eyewitness News Reporter Valerie Tysanner's first time at the PA Farm Show!
Harrisburg-
"I like to come out meet all the different people and take in all the sights and sounds of the farm show"
This is Diana Henn's 10th year working at the PA Farm Show, but she says the beauty of the event is that there's always something new to see.
 
The farm show is the largest agriculture show in the country and true to its name.  It features animals of all shapes and sizes. Alpacas. Horses and a bovine or two.
There are also vendors, featuring products from all parts of Pennsylvania. Like Schuylkill County's Long Trout Winery.
 
 "We do 40 varieties of different wines... anywhere from drys up to we do vegetable wines hot pepper, chocolates" said Diana Henn
Lycoming County's Penn Tech also comes out every year hoping to raise awareness about their programs.
 
"You know actually as you look at it it's a great event here and as you look around me there's individuals every where so it's just a good opportunity to bring and showcase what we have here " said Scott Geist, Director of Surgical Tech Programs at Penn College
But vendors aside, one of the most popular areas in the PA Farm Show is the food court.
Each year... Items new and old are featured.
This year... Bacon is a "hot ticket."
 
But then again.. so is the farm show milkshake...
It's has become so famous... A 1000 pound butter sculpture was dedicated to it this year.
Milkshake "Golden Girl" Fae Snyder has been volunteering at the stand since it began 60 years ago...

"I enjoy it and you get to see lots of people"
Now she says... She mostly comes to support the milkshake family but is always ready to lend a helping hand.
