"We've got the Swine Show in the morning. It's a busy day for the kids as they decide if they're going to go through the auction ring on Thursday. But tomorrow night, Wednesday night, we'll have a food truck roundup for the first time. So if you are a foodie, make your way on out to the fairgrounds tomorrow night. We'll have a variety of food trucks available."

Other events Wednesday include the overall showmanship contest; a kickball tournament; a pedal tractor pull, fashion and communications showcase and the awards program. Tomorrow (Wed.) will also be the last day you'll be able to see the livestock exhibits at the fair, which concludes Thursday with a pancake breakfast and the livestock auction.

Another reminder we are livestreaming the livestock shows. You can find links to the streams at the Explore Okoboji Facebook page.
