    Clay County Fair

    I've gone to the fair up in Spencer for a lot of years now. Just about every year, the big game with Iowa is during one of the weekends. I'm used to seeing a lot of Hawk fans at the fair the day of/after the game wearing their gear. Surprisingly there were not that many sporting the black and gold, but plenty of folks proudly wearing Cardinal and Gold, including me. I had tons of folks comment on the game to me since I was wearing ISU stuff. Great fair weather, good junk food, and no razzing about the game. What more could you ask for?

    My dad was from up that way, and I always liked going to the fair. Really great food, and with it in September there was always a better chance of it not being 100 degrees!

    Re: Clay County Fair

    My parents live south of there. The CC Fair is no Iowa State Fair, but they still have a lot of stuff to eat and see, and a lot less people most days than the state fair.

    Love the Clay County Fair. I prefer it over the State Fair in many ways. Much less crowded!

    Re: Clay County Fair

    I have been to the Clay county fair one time. I turned down tickets to the ISU game in Iowa City because I thought we were going to get killed. Went to the fair with family instead. The year, 1998......

    They have really gone all out with the trains in the new KICD building. I miss the little ramps for the kids that the old building had, but the new one has a big screen TV that has had sports on every time I'm at the fair, usually ISU vs Iowa. This time it was the Vikes taking care of business.

    Ha! I was there! I thought we were going to get killed too! I have been fortunate to make it to some classic games. Iowa in 1998 and 2002. OSU in 2011.

    Re: Clay County Fair

    I went every year of my life until I went to college. 100% agree w/Bobber, better than the state fair.

    I didn't see any Iowa-ISU games in person at Kinnick where ISU won, so you have one on me. In band in 1988, watched ISU lose 10-3 with an INT in the red zone, amid the 15 game losing streak. I'd have rather been at the CC Fair. I did get to see Nebraska 2009, Nebraska 2002, Nebraska 1992 (for free, cause friends thought we'd get defeated), Colorado 2005 (the tornado game), OSU 2011, and quite a few ISU wins over Iowa in the Jack.
