Annual Fair Favorite Shaping Up to Honor Famous Midwest Figure
DES MOINES, Iowa -- One of the biggest attractions at the Iowa State Fair is taking shape. Sarah Pratt is hard at work crafting her butter sculptures. Of course she's made the Jersey cow, and her companion piece this year is Laura Ingalls Wilder. This marks the 150th year since Wilder's birth. She lived in Iowa when she was 10 years old, and her sister Mary was a student at the Vinton School of the Blind when she was 12.
