Pennsylvania Farm Show 1,000 Pound Butter Sculpture

Pennsylvania Farm Show 1,000 Pound Butter Sculpture
Last weekend we went to the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show and had a great time. We took the entire family and the kids just loved this family-friendly activity and we try to visit the Farm Show every year.

One of the highlights at the PA Farm Show this year was the 1,000 lb. butter sculpture that was on display for everyone to see. It is in a protected refrigerated capsule so that it doesn't melt and doesn't get damaged by visitors.

This lovely sculpture took the artists 11 full days to complete! It depicts a young man selling milkshakes with two dancing cows in the scene. It celebrates the 60th anniversary of the milkshake being sold which is a POPULAR item to purchase while attending. Matter of fact, we get one every year and they are delicious!

Every year the butter sculpture design changes and if you do a search online you can find many articles and photos of past year's sculptures. They are really amazing to see in person!

When visiting the Pennsylvania Farm Show you can find the butter sculpture near the food court so once you pick up a freshly made milkshake and perhaps a baked potato, head on over to the exhibit and take a look at it. It is definitely a MUST SEE if you are attending the show!
