The 2016 Iowa State Fair starts tomorrow, and you’ll be able to charge up on us at the Fairgrounds – and get in a walk, too!
The Iowa Lottery is sponsoring Powerball® Power Stations at the iHeart Studios building at the Fairgrounds. (The building is just west of the Varied Industries Building along the Grand Concourse.) There will be multiple charging stations for mobile devices there, so stop by and power up, courtesy of Powerball and the Iowa Lottery.
And each weekday at the Fair, you’ll be able to join us in a half-hour walk as part of the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative! Tomorrow – the Fair’s opening day – we’ll lead a 30-minute walk that highlights the history of the Fairgrounds going all the way back to 1886. That Historical Walking Tour starts at 8:15 a.m. outside the Administration Building on the Grand Concourse. The first 50 people participating in tomorrow’s walk will get a lottery tote bag and T-shirt! Some of those you can expect to see on the Opening Day walk include WHO Radio morning host Van Harden, Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, all 99 State Fair queen candidates, members of the State Fair Board, and Fairfield, the State Fair mascot! Tomorrow’s walk will conclude at the Opening Ceremonies for the Fair.
On all other weekdays at the Fair, our 30-minute morning walk will start at 9:15 a.m. outside the iHeart Studios. Van Harden will join us on each of those walks as we start the day off on the right foot!
(And now for the fine print: The walk is open to all fairgoers. You must have a ticket to enter the Fairgrounds.)
Enjoy your time at the State Fair!
