DES MOINES, Iowa — It is another Iowa State Fair staple that's brought joys to thousands over the years: the Giant Slide.
2021 marks the 50th year for the slide, and this year, it is in a new location southwest of the Anne and Bill Riley stage as part of Walnut Square.
In honor of her late father, a woman bought 80 slide tickets this year to pass along the fair fun to others.
Local 5 and CW Iowa 23 are bringing exciting experiences to you, from live newscasts to a real-life Local 5 Weather Lab experience. The CW Iowa 23 booth will be located on Grand Avenue, and the Local 5 Weather team can be found near the Giant Slide.
Both booths will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day of the fair.
