FREE, Family Fun at the Fair

Although the Iowa State Fair gets underway today, we’re making plans for our very own country celebration. Join us Saturday, Aug. 25, for a full day of entertainment for the entire family!

The Latham Country Fair gets underway at 9 a.m. with field tours and a craft show. Professional agricultural speakers take the stage, beginning with Dr. Fred Below at 9:30 a.m. Click here for the full speaker lineup.

It’s all fun and games for kids, beginning at 10 a.m. Kids of all ages can participate in a variety of activities including: pedal tractor pull, burlap bag races, train rides on the GBO Railroad, inflatibles, petting zoo plus intricate face painting.

In addition to all of this, there will be presentations by Farm Safety 4 Just Kids and Ag in the Classroom. P.S. We’ve also planned special presentations for moms and grandmothers. Watch for more details to be posted next week about those!
