We made the four and a half our drive through the rain to Indianola, Iowa for the 36th annual Harkin Steak Fry, held this year at the Warren County Fairgrounds. The featured speakers were San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Vice President Joe Biden. After a few early bouts of rain the sky held back for the rest of the event. There was well over a thousand people in attendance, not counting a significant contingent of national media.
