Fair manager Amy Bliefnick (says that's one reason she hopes the annual agricultural extravaganza will draw more people. The (Springfield) State Journal-Register is sponsoring a "Golden Abe" award for food vendors offering new and creative culinary delicacies.

Livestock remains the fair's cornerstone. Larry Moffett -- whose family cattle-breeding operation is southwest of Decatur -- is singled out this year after 60 consecutive years of showing cattle at the fair.

Grandstand acts include Robin Thicke, Jake Owen, Pitbull and Steely Dan.
