There are a lot of food vendors at the Arkansas State Fair, but there’s one you probably need to try — not just because the food’s good but because there’s an undeniable history.

I’m talking about Superdog.

The bright corner-dweller a block from the Hall of Industry can be determined by the peal of its big shiny bell and by the ginormously long corndogs carried off by hungry Fairgoers in all directions.  But this isn’t your ordinary corndog dealer.

Superdog’s been around since 1963… and has been coming to the Arkansas State Fair for nearly 40 years.  And there’s a reason for that… on the jump.
