At the same time, there will be remote-controlled car races near the entertainment plaza. At 1 p.m. the Bill Riley Talent Show will take place on the center stage. The winners will advance to the Iowa State Fair. The livestock auction will also be happening at 1 p.m. in the show ring.

The main event for today is the IAMO tractor and local stock pickup pull at the north track. Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for ages 6-12. Following the main event, there will be a fireworks show sponsored by the Dallas County Fair Board.
