|Visit the Missouri State Fair during 50 Plus Social Outing on Aug. 15|
Competitions, craft vendors, food tents, livestock, performances, games, amusement rides and more are among things participants can experience during a mid-August social outing being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This program is called Missouri State Fair and will take participants to this annual summer tradition in Sedalia Missouri which dates back to 1901. Participants can experience all the fair has to offer at their own pace.
