Iowa State Fair starts today

DES MOINES, Iowa (KWWL)— The Iowa State Fair kicks off Thursday. The event runs through August 18th.  From foods-on-a-stick to the musical lineup this year the Iowa State Fair is aiming high to please Fairgoers.

Beginning today, more than 20 Democratic White House hopefuls are expected to navigate the festival. It’s all aimed at swaying the narrow band of voters who will attend the state’s kickoff caucuses in less than six months.

In addition, the fair will have an increase in security, with more police officers patrolling the area.

Tickets for adults are $12, while tickets for children ages six to 11 are just $6. The State Fair also, has a new app this year. You can download the feature to get up-to-date information about different events taking place.
