From the #VIIArchive (2009). Photo by @DannyWilcoxFrazier / @VIIPhoto. Dante Cataldo, 3, of Des Moines holds a flag as (left to right) his cousins Jackson, 5, and Sydney Webb, 9, his mother Jenny and sister Mia, 9, stand by at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa, on August 17, 2009.
Considered America’s classic state fair, the #IowaStateFair attracts over a million people each year. An Iowa tradition since 1854, the fair has inspired a novel, three movies, and a Broadway musical. Centered on one of the world’s largest livestock shows, the fair provides a mountain of fried food, music, rides, and of course, pork chops on a stick.
