Posted: Updated:

Jesup Farmers Day is in full swing, and this year organizers are taking their Under the Sea theme to new depths.

There's a real-life shark show underway in Jesup, and children are saying it's well worth it.

Iowans of all ages are getting their first real-life look at sharks.

Celia Fernandez says it's a lot more exciting than she first expected.

"I thought it was going to be like a puppet show, because I saw a lot of smaller kids sitting around, but no, they were real sharks," Celia said.

The entertainer incorporated the audience in his show, and kept youngsters on their toes.

Celia says the shark show is worth every second.

"I was a little nervous, because I'm not really a fan of sharks, but they're in a tank. So, it's fine. Try it out. it's OK if you don't go on the rides for five minutes," Celia said.

Celia, along with several other people celebrating Farmers Day in say they even enjoyed learning a few things about sharks.

"That, when you flip them over, they like go into a trance. Yeah, that was surprising," Celia said.

The show last few a few minutes, and the entertaining even gets in the tank and swims with the sharks for a few minutes.

If you missed Friday's show, don't worry, because more shows are set for Friday night and all day Saturday.
