Annual Auction at Illinois State Fair

The Illinois State Fair will be here before we know it and soon people from all over the state of Illinois will be flooding Springfield to enjoy the festivities.


Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs always looks forward to the Annual Live Auction at the Illinois State Fair. He explains how it got its start and how much it has grown in recent memory.



Every year it is different and there are always great items up for bid. This year Frerichs says you have the opportunity to get your hands on a coin that he himself didn’t even know existed.



Frerichs shares when and where you need to be if you are hoping to bid on some of these fine items at the Illinois State Fair.



Frerichs appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
