Iowa State Fair

During our time in Des Moines at the Iowa State Fair, we took Texas' motto "friendship" to heart and left with many new friends. Some guests held on to their All Access Pass from last year's Texas on Tour visit to Iowa and brought it with them to experience Texas all over again. These visitors liked to describe themselves as "card carrying members" of Texas on Tour.  
Iowans especially showed their stuff when it came time for Texas trivia. Kids and adults alike faired well in our game of Texas or Not trivia, many walking away with a Texas bandana or a Texas on Tour t-shirt! The best part was that no matter what the prize, they all left with a better idea of the adventures Texas has to offer.
Chris, who was visiting the Iowa State Fair from Texas, wrote a lovely note of thanks to the Texas on Tour team. In it, he mentioned how great it was to see many happy Iowans standing in line, waiting to experience a Virtual Texas. 
Thank you, Chris, for the kind words. It is notes like these that make it easy to share the joys of Texas and help others have a great experience. Next, we'll be rolling into the Minnesota State Fair, Thursday, August 23rd through Sunday, August 26th. Our stop will be fun, but brief, so make sure you make it by in time to see Texas firsthand!
