PUEBLO – The Colorado State Fair is going to get sloppier this year.

Several new events and attractions are coming to the annual event.

The fair will now host the World Slopper Eating Championship. The competition will be hosted by Major League Eating, the same group that hosts the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Another new attraction will be platform divers. The performers will be diving into pools from an 80 foot platform.

“The Colorado State Fair, I think, is going to be one of the best ones we’ve had in recent history,” said General Manager, Scott Stoller. “The lineup is going to be diverse and I think anybody from the littlest one to the oldest one in the family is going to find a lot to do at this year’s fair.”

The fair is also celebrating 150 years of horse events this year.

The festivities will start on August 23rd.
