Moo-Donna takes her spot at the fair

August 9, 2011

BLACKFOOT – Moo-Donna has her new home. The 2011 EISF mascot stretches about six feet from ear to ear and now looks down from her post atop the billboard near the east entrance of the fairgrounds.
Chad Hammond with I.E. Productions said the Eastern Idaho State Fair's three-dimensional billboards are the only of their kind appearing in the state. There are two similar EISF billboards on I-15 and another large Moo-Donna will be placed on the back of the grandstands this year.
"I think it is the coolest welcome to the fair we've ever had," said Hammond.
The EISF runs Sept 3-10.
