Alligator on a StickIllinois State Fair

7 of 14

This
favorite at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield is deep-fried and skewered,
teriyaki style. (Fans say alligator tastes like pork and is similar to veal in
texture.) And, if that doesn’t satisfy your gator needs, one of the fair’s most
popular nonculinary attractions is Swampmaster’s Gator Show, a sort of
Siegfried & Roy act.

Where: Springfield, IL
When: Fair
opens mid-August.
