On Aug. 8, 1 will have the distinct
pleasure of officially opening the 151st Illinois State Fair in
Springfield. This year's fair is shaping up to be one of the best
ever, and I would like to invite area residents to join my family
and me in enjoying the many exciting events at the Illinois State
Fair Aug. 8-17.
The Illinois State Fair is devoted to
providing the best that Illinois agriculture has to offer, including
daily livestock events, horticulture competitions, food bake-offs
and sampling of Illinois food products.

In addition to this commitment to
agriculture, the state fair provides a family-friendly environment
filled with activities, food and exhibits. Eleven free stages of
entertainment give every fair goer the opportunity to join in the
fun and excitement. The grandstand lineup promises star-studded
performances by some of our nation's best entertainers as well as
motor sports. The Illinois State Fair combines agriculture, food and
family fun to make it the premier summer attraction in the Midwest.
You can find more information about the
host of daily adventures by logging onto
www.illinoisstatefair.info. There are activities and
entertainment to provide enjoyment for all ages, and I hope you can
come join the fun. See you at the Illinois State Fair Aug. 8-17 in
