SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Jay Nixon is helping kick off the events at the 110th annual Missouri State Fair.

Nixon planned to purchase ticket for the fair Thursday in Sedalia, then greet attendees at the entrance gate before taking part in the official opening ceremony.

The fair runs from Thursday through Aug. 19. It features the standard fair attractions lots of livestock, carnival-style rides, concerts and shows and, of course, food.

Nixon and many other politicians plan to be on hand Aug. 16 for the fair’s annual governor’s ham breakfast.
