The Great New York State Fair is in the running for best state fair in the country in a reader's choice online contest.

As of Tuesday, the fair ranked second behind the Iowa State Fair in USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice travel award contest.

A panel of travel writers selected the 20 state fairs included in the contest, which describes the New York State Fair as "one of the Northeast's biggest gatherings of Baby Boomers."

Voting ends Sept. 28. The 12-day fair ends Sept. 7.

In a previous USA Today travel poll in April, Letchworth State Park in western New York was voted the nation's best state park.
