(Sean P. Means | The Salt Lake Tribune) Christopher the magician does the "invisible egg" trick for a group of passing fourth-graders Friday at the Utah State Fair.

There are as many ways to see the Utah State Fair as there are people who go there.

To some, it’s a chance to eat fried food and then risk hurling it all back up on the dizzying rides. To others, it’s a place to show off your quilting skills, or your jam-making prowess, or your prize steer. And to others, it’s an opportunity to shop for anything from a vegetable slicer to a hot tub.

The Cricket spent Friday seeing the fair through some particular sets of eyes: Fourth-graders on a school field trip.

The class, from Salt Lake City’s Open Classroom, got to see and touch (and, ew, smell) farm animals. They also saw crafts being demonstrated, and watched a wandering magician and high-diving athletes.
