It’s time for a surprise adventure!

After talking to my dad on Sunday I learned he would be in Des Moines, IA for a few days for both the state fair and the state bid calling competition! I grew up in the auction industry and religiously attend the Minnesota state fair, but it has been a few years since I have been to the Iowa.
Today I get to eat some good food; have some good fun; admire the giant butter cows and watch some great bid calling. Get excited! And don’t forget to check in tomorrow for photos and other fun.

Do you have a local fair you love to visit every year? Do they have any amazingly strange traditions you can’t get enough of?
