BILL PRICKETT VISITS--
MISISSIPPI VALLEY FAIR
DAVENPORT IOWA
TUESDAY, AUGUST 1, 2012
Dick--
 Here are a few of the photos from my short visit to Misissippi Valley Fair in Davenport, Iowa, on Tuesday afternoon, 8-01-12.
  The area of the fair that I visited had the  "Tiger Encounter Show, G.W. Exotic Animal Park exhibit, Great Cats exhibit, Live Bear Show, Duck
 Races, Alligator Show, and large  Petting Zoo". In spite of the heat, there was a large number of people, including youngsters, that
 stopped  to visit the exhibits, see the shows, pet the young tigers, ride the camels, and ask questions about the animals. They also got to
 witness the care taken to keep these animals cool, including fans, water hose misters, large pools for tigers to play in the water, fresh straw and
feed all afternoon, and large tents for shade.
