Not only the baby chicks near the entrance to the Lowell Mohler Building were diggin’ it, but everyone else attending the kickoff party for the 2013 Missouri State Fair on Thursday afternoon were diggin’ it as well.
Party goers were treated to hot dogs, corn dogs, potato chips, cookies, ice cream, soft drinks and beer while they mingled in a space decked out in yellow balloons and light blue tablecloths.
Guest speakers included MSF Director Mark Wolfe, MSF Director of Marketing Tammie Nichols and MSF Commission Vice Chairman Lowell Mohler.
An array of sponsors were recognized and they posed for photos with fair administrators at the event.
The 2013 Missouri State Fair with the theme “Chick Dig It!” runs Aug. 8 – 18. Tickets for all grandstand shows are now on sale. For more information, visit www.mostatefair.com. Photos by Randy Kirby, Sedalia News Journal.
