Through the eyes of a child


Young children enjoy their visit to the Missouri State Fair

Sutton Hughes, 15 months, enjoys a bite of her very first corn dog while her father holds her. Hughes is from Knob Noster and was attending the Missouri State Fair for the first time Saturday afternoon.


Cowboy Keith Bixenman, 5, watches a sheep show as his little sister, Emily Bixenman, plays with her handkerchief. After the show Keith said he planned to make his way down to the midway to “ride some rides.”


Avery Lee, 2, looks at the State Fair sights with a different perspective Saturday afternoon before watching her uncles compete in the draft mule hitches competition.


Newt Clinton, of Willow Springs, sits in the seat of a CAT 2890 on Opening Day of the Missouri State Fair. The 3-year-old said he wants to buy the tractor because “it can cut grass.”


Alex Coffman, 6, of Purdin, watches the cows being milked in the Dairy Barn.


Wyatt Murkin, 20 months, of Kingsville, stands beside a feed trough. Murkin had spent several minutes pulling up clumps of grass and throwing them in the trough to test its durability.


Charli Erickson, 7, and her sister Naia, 6, from Montana, peer through the glass as the three cows are milked early Saturday morning in the Dairy Barn on the fairgrounds. The two girls said they liked everything about the Fair but especially the Clydesdales and the cotton candy.
