Humans are social creatures. We're designed to band together, and be happier and more fulfilled when we do so. Maybe that's why so many of us love a fair.

I love the lights, the sounds, and of course the food. There will be plenty of all those things when The Great Mississippi Valley Fair opens today in West Davenport.

Big grandstand shows are also a highlight of the Mississippi Valley Fair and this year is no exception. Here is this year's lineup...

  • Tue, July 31 - Chris Young
  • Wed, Aug 1 - Sublime with Rome
  • Thu, Aug 2 - Toby Keith
  • Fri, Aug 3 - Theory of a Deadman
  • Sat, Aug 4 - Billy Currington
  • Sun, Aug 5 - Justin Moore

Look for me in my KIIK 104.9 shirt full of mustard and BBQ sauce stains.
