An Iowa rodeo clown will entertain crowds during the Inter-State Fair and Rodeo on August 15th and 16th. Allan Dessel will be bringing his own unique brand of comedy to the fair, with acts such as the Dance Evolution, a study of nearly 90 years of dance.
Dessel got his start in rodeo as a teenager while helping local rodeos behind the scenes. In his younger days, he was a bullfighter, but slowly transitioned to his current status as a rodeo clown throughout the years. His first rodeo as a clown was in 2007, and he's been doing it ever since.
Rodeo tickets for this year's Inter-State Fair and Rodeo are $15. Fun passes, which allow for entry to all five nights of grandstand entertainment, are $45.
