Pueblo Chile Funnel Cake

PUEBLO — The Colorado State Fair continues in Pueblo all week before wrapping up Labor Day night. There's still plenty of time to check out all the family entertainment, games, concerts, and of course the food. News5 Photojournalist Carl Winder found a vendor serving a Pueblo Chile Funnel Cake. A little sugar and spice, if you will.

Thanks to everyone who joined the News5 team on Tuesday for KOAA Day at the fair!
