(Harrisburg) -- The butter sculpture at the 97th Pennsylvania Farm Show is about to be unveiled ahead of the what's billed as the nation's largest indoor agricultural event.


The show at its massive complex in Harrisburg formally begins on Saturday and runs through January 12, but officials will take the wraps off the buttery artwork this evening. The food court and equine area open at noon tomorrow.

New food court offerings, always a popular topic, include veal meatball sandwiches, bacon on a stick, pumpkin funnel cakes and apple cider slushies.

Last year's butter sculpture depicted a young 4-H member showing his prized calf at a county fair.

The Farm Show features about 6,000 animals, some 10,000 exhibits and a wide variety of family-friendly fun.
