Another Day in Iowa, and we're at the Mississippi Valley Fairgounds - but, first breakfast...
...and now we're ready to roll-in (despite always arriving early, there's a line!)
The perks of actually arriving early can often include premium parking locations, though.
This was one, of several, parking lots that were simply overflowing with cars.
There's a style for everyone and every taste.
It was awesome to have a live band on-site at this event, too (still within site of some cool customs)!
We quickly learned that starting and ending the day with good food was a must-do; we found a regional joint, called the "Machine Shed," to smash some post-cruisin' hunger.
