Altoona Lions Spin Art Booth At Iowa State Fair
Altoona Lions Spin Art Booth At Iowa State Fair
The photo above shows the Altoona Lions Spin Art booth at the Iowa State Fair. We have run this booth for 48 years (as of 2012). Kids love it, because it is fun. Parents love it because it is the best bargain at the Fair.

It requires over 100 people, Lions members and Lions friends, to run the stand for the 11 days of the Fair each year.

The State Fair booth, plus running the booth at other places such as Prairie Meadows and the Des Moines Art Fair, have generated over $250,000 over the years. The Lions have donated those Spin Art revenues to hundreds of community service projects.
