The East Coast Hitch of the Budweiser Clydesdales kicked off the Illinois State Fair in style with an estimated crowd of 90,000!
Running from August 8th to August 18th in Springfield, Ill., the tradition of the Illinois State Fair started in 1853. Until 1894 though, the fair did not permanently reside in Springfield, but was hosted at least once in each of the following cities: Alton, Centralia, Chicago, Decatur, DuQuoin, Freeport, Jacksonville, Olney, Ottawa, Peoria, and Quincy.
