you haven't experienced all the iowa state fair has to offer if you haven't purchased a funnel cake & some fresh lemonade, found a little shady spot out of the midwestern heat & just watched. there is a whole world – unique to the fair – & you are missing it!

here are some tips to enhance your viewing:

choose your spot wisely. make sure there aren't any trees in front of you
& that you aren't close to the trash can or bathrooms.

stay inconspicuous by doing something while you watch. eat. wear sunglasses.
look at your mobile. basically, don't be the creepy staring person on the bench.
make it a competition with a friend or your family. create a list of things to spot,
set a time limit & the person you finds the most buys the other a deep-fried snickers
or a beer! here are just a few ideas to get you started: hipsters, doppelgangers,
mullets, sleeping kids, turkey legs, fanny packs & jorts.
have fun! be light-hearted & a good sport.
don't make fun or be rude...someone could be watching you!

see you at the fair...we'll be watching for you.
