The state fair opening day was Thursday. This is the first time we went on Opening Day, but my husband wanted to see the flowers on the first day when they are freshest and he likes to see the Clydesdale horses and they are only here till Sunday. The quilts are hung in the same building as the flowers. They were lovely and it seemed as if there were more this year. Anybody else have plans to go? We will be going back again tomorrow and probably a few more times. If any of you plan on going be sure to stop in the Expo building directly across from the Flower Building and half way back on the left side is the History Museum. There is a great display and also 2 lovely murals newly refurbished. I think the last time they were displayed was in 1948, or it could be that was when they were painted.
