Delivering thrills, chills, screams, and smiles, the carnival has been a part of the Oklahoma State Fair for more than 100 years. From the famous historic carousel to the heart-pounding Mega Drop, the Midway is filled with sights and sounds that you can only experience once a year - but the memories will last forever.
