The Iowa State Fair is held in Des Moines, Iowa each year in August and attracts a million visitors. This year is also the 25th anniversary of the film ‘Field of Dreams’ starring Kevin Costner and the fair paid homage.
With a few weeks left in August there is still time to celebrate some of the unusual holidays in the month. On the 10th it is ‘Lazy Day’ a day to goof off and not work best spent in a hammock. On the 13th we celebrate ‘Left Hander’s Day’.
Coming this Friday and Saturday, July 11-12 is the Le Festival de la Bastille at the Calumet Club in Augusta. Live music, fun and fireworks are on the agenda for the two days, but why do the French celebrate Bastille Day? calumetclub.com
