The first weekend of the Missouri State Fair is here to celebrate Then & Wow! Today is Pepsi Day, where you can get $1 off adult admission and $5 off carnival ride wristband, which you’ll need a specially marked Diet Pepsi can to get the discount.
The Missouri State Fair got off to a great start yesterday, and today more fun is planned to Celebrate Then and Wow! First off, it is MoDOT day, where you can enjoy all kinds of games and activities in the Highway Gardens.
The 110th Missouri State Fair is officially here. Each day there are different activities planned through the day and we hope you enjoy some of the activities. As of right now, the Pepsi Grandstand shows have not sold out, so you can get tickets at the Pepsi Grandstand Box Office during the course of the Missouri State Fair.
Each year the Centennial Park Pool closes just before the Missouri State Fair, usually because the Missouri State Fair is starting up and demand for the two pools goes down as people flock to the Fairgrounds. The other rational is some of the lifeguards are college students and they begin their trek back to college.
In the last few years, a tradition has started up where on the last day before the pools are drained, they allow dogs to come out and swim. The doggie dive will occur at Centennial Park Pool today (August 7) starting at 6 p.m. and will last until 7:30 p.m.
I have been known to love spicy food and spicy sauces over the years. However I have to admit that mild has been the way I roll in recent years. I took the family out to Boonville and Columbia last weekend and tried Buckhingham’s Smokehouse BBQ. I am not going to do a formal review of the place, but I do want to talk about the sauces.
My father had a saying growing up; “You could go all over the world and see some amazing things, but take the time to see what’s in your backyard too.” I decided to pack up the kids and head to The Peach Tree Farm in Boonville on our way to Columbia.
I am a very proud Air Force brat. Even at my age, I always feel like I’ll have that title as my father served proudly for 20 years. My mom served in the Air Force as well. Some of my favorite memories surround the military, like when I got to see President Ronald Reagan visit Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany and when I saw the Air Force Thunderbirds on numerous occasions. Then, there is Tops In Blue.
Tops In Blue is a variety show that is comprised of active duty Air Force personnel who put on performances all across the world. I have seen many of their shows, and this year they will be playing on Thursday, August 9, at the University of Central Missouri Multipurpose Building at 7 p.m.
Many people may not soon forget the amazing run the St. Louis Cardinals had in 2011 on their way to the World Series, but the storied Cardinals team history runs deeper than just one season. A magical season also occurred in 1982, where the Cardinals went 92-70 and won the National League East. If you remember, those were the days of just two divisions in each league. The Cardinals then went on to sweep the Atlanta Braves before they won in an epic seven game series versus the Milwaukee Brewers.
30 years later, the Brewers and Cardinals will play again as National League Central foes, and it is a fitting time to reflect on that 1982 season. The Cardinals have announced that more than 20 1982 Cardinals players will come to the three-game series at Busch Stadium to be honored this weekend (August 3-5).
Despite having the 5th best percentage in the league, the Mid-Missouri Outlaws have advanced to the playoffs. Here is the official statement of the playoffs proceedings for this year as according to the American Professional Football League:
