DES MOINES, Iowa- Early in the morning on the first day of the Iowa State Fair some 200 people gathered for a walk with two purposes.
One was the Healthiest State Initiative, hoping to get Iowans to walk, and be healthier. The other was a tour of the history of the Iowa State Fair. Both tours were done together.
About 20 minutes into the tour the skies opened up and the tour then sought shelter in the Ag Building and the craft beer area.
Also a number of State Fair Queen Candidates were on the tour.
