One of the highlights of Summer for many "Iowegians" is attending the Iowa State Fair. We at Isabel Bloom get pretty excited about it too!
For the 5th straight year, there will be a special sculpture available only during the fair, which runs August 8th through the 18th. A limited number of "Champions in the Making" in this exclusive finish, will be available for sale through the Blue Ribbon Foundation. Proceeds will help renovate and improve the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
"Champions in the Making" is available at the Blue Ribbon Foundation booths found throughout the fairgrounds. The booths are located in the following buildings:
- John and Emily Putney Family Cattle Barn - Central Foyer
- John Deere Agriculture Building - Lower East Entrance
- Jacobson Hall Museum Store
- Robert Horner and Sheri Avis Horner Service Center
Price for each Limited Edition sculpture is $38. If any sculptures remain after the fair, they will be on the Iowa State Fair's webstore which will open again in September. Here is the link:
Here is a list of past year's sculptures:
