Grassley Q&A


Q: What’s your favorite part of the Iowa State Fair?

A: I get to the fair every year and really enjoy walking around to see everything that’s on display and to visit with Iowans. I also enjoy the chance to see the biggest bull and pig. The youth talent show with “Mr. State Fair,” Bill Riley, was always entertaining. Bill will definitely continue to be missed, but his talent show still lives on through his son, Bill Riley Jr., who now is the host. It’s always impressive to see the talented Iowans who perform on stage. Most years I also pour iced tea at the pork tent and visit the beef tent to help promote these vital agricultural industries. The Iowa State Fair is second to none in providing knowledge and information about agriculture and agriculture-related activities to people from all around the world in a fun and entertaining way.
