Phone technology making festival season easier than ever

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

It's fair and festival season in Iowa, and no matter where you go, make sure to take your smartphone with you.

The Sturgis Falls celebration begins in Cedar Falls on Thursday.   You can find a full list of events online at http://www.sturgisfalls.org.  But you can also keep all the information in your pocket with a new free app for the iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone.

The application contains a rundown of all the events, what bands are playing, and more.

Meanwhile, organizers at the Iowa State Fair are also working on a tech-friendly way to find out what's going on this August.  Web developers are currently putting the finishing touches on a mobile website, friendly to all smartphones. 

Officials at the Iowa State Fair say there aren't any plans for a phone application this year, but aren't ruling out one for future years.

The Iowa State Fair happens in Des Moines, running August 11-21.
