ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Say welcome to green chile apple pie and deep fried chile relleno chile cheese dogs as the New Mexico State Fair kicks off its 10-day run in Albuquerque.

Thursday’s noon-hour competition to judge the fair’s most unique foods is likely to be the big opening day draw. Competitors are also offering up unusual, New Mexico-centric items like deep fried taco green chile cheese curds and bacon wrapped deep fried green chile pigs in a blanket.

Other surefire crowd-pleasers include barrel-racing dogs and pig and duck races.

The day features free admission for all current law enforcement personnel, $2 general admission for everyone and $12 wristbands allowing unlimited carnival rides starting at 2 p.m.

The fair opens at 10 a.m. and runs through Sept. 17.
