County fairs rolling all around the state


IARN — It’s full steam ahead for our summer fairs and celebrations all around the state. It’s a great time to celebrate our local communities, the kids and their projects, and get together with people from all over our cities and counties. These all culminate with the Iowa State Fair, which will be held August 10th – 20th in Des Moines.

So far, the atmosphere has been very relaxed at our local county fairs. There has been less worry about foreign animal diseases, especially Avian Influenza. That means there is less stress on those running fairs and those who are exhibiting livestock.
