My first day of the 2010 Iowa State Fair is complete.
I didn’t melt, even if it was 149 degrees in the shade. It was 238 degrees in the Ag Building.
I didn’t pass out, but I did have fun at the fair, which is a requirement.
John and I hit the opening of the new Jacobson Exhibition Center, the 4-H building and the butter cow. You can expect all of those features in this year’s Iowa Public Television’s Iowa State Fair Coverage. The nightly IPTV fair shows begin Monday at 9p.
I’ll be back out to the fair on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Will you be there any of those days?
Tuesday I’ll be covering the wood chopping event at Pioneer Hall on the grounds’ east side. That is an afternoon event.
Levi will make his ISF debut on Wednesday as we take the stroller through the grounds with Noah, Amy and myself.
Then Thursday, I’ll be at the Bill Riley stage for the pie eating contest.
Maybe I’ll see you at the fair. Regardless, enjoy a true Iowa treasure.
