State Fair, a Great Musical

The Good Old Days

For anyone who attends fairs, this will be a nostalgia trip of sorts.  County and State Fairs are gathering places in the heartland.  Here in Minnesota, the State Fair is a great experience and I am sure other states are equally great.  This movie set in Iowa is another midwestern seasonal event that shows a little of the heart and soul of a nation.

I love old musicals.  The songs go through your head for days.  This one even features a giant pig or two.  Makes me hungry for a corn dog and mini donuts as I type. With the advent of DVD's a lot of folks are catching up on the oldies and this is a classic.
