Palmer -- The Alaska State Fair
"More than Giant Cabbage"
Palmer is located in the Mat-Su Valley, (Matanuska-Susitna) which is the agricultural region of Alaska. Alaska has a short growing season, but with 20+ hours of daylight, the produce here is huge. The giant cabbage competition is today (time of writing -- not time of visit) and the question is will it weigh over 100 pounds!
