Freshening up the fairgrounds


Jorge Guevara gives one of the kiosks a fresh coat of white paint at the Missouri State Fair main entrance on 16th Street Friday morning. Guevara said Sherwin Williams donated a large part of the painting supplies, and Guesa USA covered the rest of the expenses, as well as set up the project with the Missouri State Fair. W-K Chevrolet provided a truck to transport the supplies. “We wanted to make the entrance of the Fair and the city look better because we’re selling our city to the crowd,” he said. “We felt it was much needed. The community supports our businesses, and our businesses support the community.”


Megan Coulter carefully paints the white trim of one of the entrance kiosks Friday morning. Guevara said repainting the entrance was not in the MSF budget, so he and Guesa USA “figured we’d do this little part of it.” “It needed to be fixed,” Coulter said. “We want to make it look nice for the Fair.”


Cam Jennings stretches as far as he can to paint the top of the middle kiosk at the main Missouri State Fair entrance. Guevara said they planned to finish all the white painting Friday and they would return Saturday to finish the trim and the colored portions of the entrance.
