Okay folks, here is the Missouri State Fair Web Cam for 2013. Wade/Lowery on the midway again this year. It updates every five seconds and has a couple good shots of the midway coming together. Be sure to check back Thursday Aug. 8 between 4 and late into the evening as the opening ceremonies/parade enters the fair. This night is usually jam packed as they have $2.00 admission and two dollar food deals. Enjoy as we Missouri folks will welcome the Fireball and Vertigo to the midway for the first time. Thank you Wade and Lowery for bringing them!

Great midway and the show looks better than ever. The Lowery screamer really looks great and the fireball was really impressive at top speed and height. A different layout from the past couple of years, and yes the surfs up was another new one on the midway. Many different concessions and games.

Springfield closed Saturday night. I don't think there is going to be a coaster this year though.

Since it sits in the middle of the midway it may be connected to the same power source as the lighting on the umbrellas that cover the benches that were also lit when I drove by. (just a guess) Can`t wait to see what it looks like when the mega drop, vertigo, and fireball are all lit together. They are all in a row to the left side of the wheel.

I thought I seen another new ride too, maybe similar looking to the surfs up ride that was at Delaware. It`s going to be great!

Just got back from the fair. The vertigo and fireball and white waters were a first for me. The rides were packed and going strong. Wade looked good!

I agree! They did a great job of planning this one. I took a spin on the cheese wheel and left the spinning rides to the younger ones.
