JFK was in Alaska this day where he attended the state fair in Palmer. He was photographed standing with Langdon P. Marvin, Jr. and Matanuska Valley homesteader J.V. Kruscavage with his donkey Cindy.
His host for the day was Palmer Mayor Charles E. Logsdon, who rode in the Thunderbird convertible along with Kennedy. around the muddy fairgrounds. On the State Fair midway, the car got stuck in a mudhole and Kennedy was forced to climb out while his entourage and fair goers helped push the car to drier terrain.
