HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Fair officials are welcoming Gov. Jack Markell for a VIP tour of the attractions at the annual summer gathering in Harrington.
Markell was to join Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee and environmental secretary Collin O'Mara on Tuesday to celebrate Governor's Day at the fair.
Miss Delaware 2013 Rebecca Jackson also was to be on hand for the event.
Markell planned to start his day with a tour of the horse barn and 4-H demonstrations and contests before meeting with a delegation from Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.
The delegation from Delaware's sister state planned to offer tastings of Japanese cuisine.
