I have never been to the Missouri State Fair.  My colleagues have been talking about how much fun it is, the amazing amount of people that come from all over the state.  I am looking forward to the amazing list of artists of all genre's of music that will be there.  I heard Boys II Men played last year, as did the Beach Boys and Frankie Ballard.  You can count on KIX 105.7 and Awesome 92.3 FM to be there every day. Broadcasting, doing giveaways, etc.  It should be a lot of fun, and lets pray for no rain!

61 Pictures of Smiling Faces and Sights of the Mo. State Fair

The best way to experience the Missouri State Fair is to go to the Missouri State Fair. Eat the food, enjoy some cold beverages, ride the rides, see the shows, go to the concerts. The second way is through the smiling faces and photos of the people there. During the 2021 Missouri State Fair, I asked you on Facebook, to post your state fair photos. What struck me most about your photos were all the smiling faces. Here's the collection of the photos you posted on our Facebook page.
