The 2014 Wisconsin State Fair by the numbers

Aug. 12, 2014 11:36 a.m.

Less than 24 hours after closing its gates for 2014, the Wisconsin State Fair tallied up and released its final numbers for this year's edition. The results equal out to yet another year of big numbers and broken records.

Older, wiser Spacehog blasts into State Fair

Aug. 5, 2014 11:35 a.m.

This time around, Spacehog returns to Milwaukee in a larger venue, joining Everclear, Soul Asylum and Eve 6 in the Summerland Tour at State Fair Thursday night night. It's easy to call it a `90s band reunion - and it may be - but listen to Spacehog play, and then ask yourself if this is a band just cashing a paycheck. Pretty sure you'll come to the same conclusion I did. We caught up with Spacehog drummer Jonny Cragg from Denver, as his tour moves to the Midwest. He talked about life on the road and what's next for a band that did so much more in its four albums that just what you heard on the radio and saw on MTV.

The iconic Milk House lives on at State Fair

July 31, 2014 3:02 p.m.

The first time people wondered if the now-famous "milk house" would disappear was in 2011 when Herb Kohl announced that he was retiring from the Senate. It was only natural to think what would happen with the popular attraction in 2014, what with Kohl nearly completely out of the public spotlight after selling the Milwaukee Bucks. But, not to worry -- the house is back!
