Jim Victor and Marie Pelton, a husband-and-wife team from Conshohocken, have created their fourteenth consecutive butter sculpture for the New York State Fair, according to a staff report from Daily Freeman.
The Montgomery County team has carved every butter sculpture for the fair since 2003. Their latest sculpture was unveiled on Wednesday, when Governor Andrew Cuomo officially opened the 171st New York State Fair’s in Syracuse.
This year’s sculpture pays tribute to the New York State Police’s centennial. It depicts three state troopers at the fair, two of whom are petting a baby calf. The third trooper is shown interacting with a young child carrying a glass of milk.
And while the sculpture itself is not edible, visitors to the fair will have other foods to enjoy. Delicacies this year include everything from traditional fare such as sausage sandwiches, to various new culinary creations. One mouthwatering example is the Milk Bun, which is an ice cream with toppings encased in a steamed doughnut.
To see the stunning sculpture in person and sample the fair’s atmosphere, visit anytime this weekend as the 13-day fair is open through Labor Day.
