Governor Quinn enjoyed the first day of the state fair.
Quinn says he's already had two pork-on-a stick meals and that's just the beginning of his food indulgence over the next ten days. Great food is just one of the many thrills at the state fair. There are plenty of activities for parents and kids to enjoy, including concerts, harness and auto racing, archery lessons for the kids, and you may even get lucky enough to catch the birth of a baby pig. The fair runs until next Sunday, August 19th on the state fairgrounds in Springfield.
