Iowa State Fair offers both old, new features

When the Iowa State Fair opens its doors for its 11-day run, the ingredients that make it a must-see attraction will be there.

There's the food, the music and the competition.  There's also the livestock, the rides, and the beloved butter cow.

Some visitors say they're drawn to the fair by its unique food, many of which involve fried delicacies on a stick.

Others are there for the friendly competition.  There are more than 7,500 competitions at the fair that judge everything from the best cornstalk to the top decorative quilt.  There are also nearly 50 special event contests that judge titles like the best arm wrestler and the best hog caller.

The Iowa State Fair will be open Thursday through Aug. 17.
