I think I'm more looking forward to the Mississippi Valley Fair this year more than any other year.

I remember being 14 and going with my girlfriend to see Winger at the fair. Then 20 year later, Alice Cooper. This years line-up has the deck loaded as my friend, fair director Shawn Loter, showing his hand as he prepares for the 100th year of the MVF in 2019.

Tuesday July 31st -Chris Young

Wednesday August 1st -Sublime with Rome

Thursday August 2nd- Toby Keith

Friday August 3rd - Theory of a Deadman

Saturday August 4th- Billy Currington

Sunday August 5th- Justin Moore

Get your fun cards are $55 now through June 30th, and $60 after. The card gets you on the fairgrounds and into the show. To purchase yours, call (563) 326-5338 or stop by the Mississippi Valley Fair office Monday-Friday, 8am to 4pm.

Think about it, its $10 to get into the fair, and then you get a show for free, or you get a Show for $10 and admission to the fair for free. That's how it breaks down. Not a bad deal.
