Massive popcorn ball to be featured at state fair


This year, the Indiana State Fair wanted to find a centerpiece that popped and Topeka's Snax in Pax had something pretty big in mind.

They will create a 5,000 pound popcorn ball to be featured at the fair. It is currently a little over halfway finished, weighing in at about 2,600 pounds.

The ball will head down to the state fairgrounds next week, where fair volunteers will finish the popcorn ball by hand.

Will Huggins, Vice President of Snax In Pax said, "We're just happy and proud to be a part of something that is going to go down in the history books, even if it's a short time."

The ball will be unveiled at the State Fair on August 3rd. After the display, the unflavored popcorn will be divided and fed to livestock.
