The 116th Missouri State Fair is August 9-August 19 in Sedalia. This year, the fair will have six nights of fireworks for fair-goers to enjoy.

"I'm kind of excited about all the extra fireworks, this year," said Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe. "If you're a fireworks fan, Bryant Motors came on big time this year and did a big sponsorship with us, we're going to have six nights of fireworks. That's always kind of a crowd favorite, to have a lot of fireworks."
