Butter sculptors tease reveal of this year’s sculpture at the NY State Fair

The New York State Fair gets underway in less than 48 hours and crews are busy getting everything ready for the 13-day event.

While there are countless reasons why people come out, many are anticipating the famous butter sculpture.

This will be the 51st year that the fair has been making butter sculptures.

Jim Victor and his wife Marie are in their 17th year of creating the masterpiece after getting the gig from seeing a wanted ad in the newspaper.

Jim has studied sculpture and worked with chocolate in the past, but now he’s using 800 pounds of butter to make his masterpiece.
