United States & CanadaFamily Fun at your State Fair!

"Our State Fair is a Great State Fair."
   -- Rodgers And Hammerstein

 

It’s Blue Ribbon excitement at the Iowa State Fair – the nation’s biggest, oldest, and greatest! August 9-19, 2012, join more than a million exhibitors and visitors at the historic 400-acre fair grounds in Des Moines, Iowa. Thrill your way through countless midway rides and games, cheer to the tractor pulls and rodeos, and stomp your feet to the beat of live rock, country, and bluegrass music. Then pause for a stroll through the many exhibit halls with home, garden, cooking, food, art and craft, and agricultural and educational displays. The kids will love the livestock barns – getting up close to cows, calves, pigs, sheep, and chickens. Look for the 4-H blue ribbon winners. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll find oodles of food booths with your favorite treats for sale.

This is just one of many State Fairs celebrated across the country. All offering loads of entertainment!

Make it a family tradition and head off to a State Fair near you - many celebrated far into the fall season.

Find a State Fair near you.

United States & CanadaVolcanoes, Earthquakes, and Tsunamis -- Oh My!

Volcanoes, Earthquakes, and Tsunamis -- Oh My!

Mother Nature has never been more active than on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Earthquakes are frequent on the Big Island of Hawaii, but more so recently and with higher magnitudes. Swarms of earthquakes accompanied the March 5, 2011 collapse of the Puu 'O 'o crater and the eruption of lava from the March 6, 2011 fissure, spattering molten lava up to 80 feet high along Kilauea's east rift zone.

At the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, you can find out more about the earthquakes at http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ and Kilauea's recent activity at http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/. Check out the volcano webcams at http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hvo/cams/

On March 10, 2011 a devastating 9.0 earthquake hit Japan setting off a tsunami racing across the Pacific. Waves up to 6 feet high surged onto the coastal areas of Hawaii causing widespread damage. Find more information about the March 11, 2011 Honshu Tsunami at NOAA Center for Tsunami Research .
