COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The annual Ohio State Fair has kicked off in Columbus.


The new attractions this year include a bear show, a gymnastics and dance performance on horseback, and foods such as the sloppy donut, banana dog, chicken dog and funnel cake sundae.


Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) joined general manager Virgil Strickler in opening ceremonies Wednesday. Kasich then toured parts of the fairgrounds with his wife, Karen, and their twin 14-year-old daughters, Emma and Reese. Ohio’s governor routinely opens the event, but it is unusual to make it a family affair.


Kasich is seeking re-election this year. He faces Democrat Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County executive in Cleveland.


This is the 161st year for the fair.
