(SEDALIA, Mo.) – The Missouri State Fair wrapped up this weekend. It ended with several concerts, a flash mob, and lots of rides, food, fun and excitement for all.

Population was high on the fairgrounds, especially the Midway pictured above, as time neared the start of the Hank Williams Jr. and George Thorogood and the Destroyers show.
