The Illinois State Fair opens next week in Springfield. In an effort to try to raise attendance levels new promotions were announced Thursday. State Fair Manager Kevin Gordon says there is something new this year called a Feeding Frenzy.
A high dive show will be there, along with racing pigs, and harness racing. There will also be four new carnival rides this year.
The Fair will run August 8th through the 18th. For more information visit illinoisstatefair.info.
