PHOENIX — The Arizona State Fair announced the return of its drive-thru food fair on Tuesday, and with the holidays coming up, have added an assortment of holiday treats.

Gingerbread funnel cakes, candy cane cotton candy, fresh-baked cinnamon rolls, deep-fried Eggnog and, if you're still craving turkey, turkey legs are on the menu, a news release said.

Brianda Martinez, a marketing assistant at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, said some vendors would also have hot chocolate and cider, coffee, festive churros, candy apples, and deep-fried apple and pumpkin pie.

The "Ho-Ho Holiday Drive-Thru" will open for two weekends in December -- Dec. 10-13 and Dec. 17-20 -- at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, near 19th Avenue and Monte Vista Road.

Hours will be 4 p.m. - 10 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. There is no admission or entry fee, but make sure to bring cash or a card to pay for those treats.

After the Arizona State Fair was canceled earlier this year because of COVID-19 concerns, officials opened a fall drive-thru food fair featuring the fair's most popular items, such as turkey legs, funnel cakes, and deep-fried treats.

Due to its popularity, the fair extended the event several times. It also resulted in hours-long waits for some during its peak times.
