500-Pound Butter Cow
What can you do with 500 pounds of butter at the Upper Peninsula State Fair — make it into a sculpture of a cow and calf of course!
Artist Tom Paul Fitzgerald did a great job of sculpting and especially talking with all the fair goers that stopped by to observe his talent. He let many people into the specially designed cooler where he worked so they could get a close look at his artistic production.
My family and I got a chance to get our hands covered in butter and work on the sculpture. This was a new event at the Upper Peninsula State Fair and it drew many spectators. The butter cow was sponsored by local dairy farmers.
