Floppy fans got to see their old friend today at the Iowa Hall of Pride.

Hundreds of people enjoyed the Floppy Film Festival and stopped by to take a photo with the famous Floppy. Originally, the traveling festival had planned on only one showing. But they had so many Floppy fans call in that they decided to offer two showings.

“Never underestimate Floppy’s popularity or the support of his fans," said Jeff Stein, Broadcast historian.

"Whether it’s social media, attendance at events like this, or wearing t-shirts at the State Fair; Floppy fans, or as I call them, Floppy nation is very strong,” Stein said.

The Floppy Film Festival travels to venues around Iowa so fans can see their old friend while doing some good in the community. All ticket proceeds from today go back into the Iowa Hall of Pride.
