Indiana State Fair

Who can ask for more?? One of my favorite times of year is August when the Indiana State Fair is going on.  This year, it starts on Wednesday, August 6 and runs through Sunday, August 17. During that time, visitors can take in all the events, concerts, activities and food their hearts’ desire!

This year the fair is celebrating with “Year of the Trees” and will highlight all of the 50 types of trees that are indigenous to Indiana.

Here are some new things for 2008 that you don’t want to miss:

  • The new covered bridge was designed after the famous Parke County bridges and was constructed completely out of Indiana hardwoods. Visit the bridge on the northwest side of the fairgrounds.
  • The Gazebo Gift Shop will be decorated like a tree and you can find all sorts of Indiana wood souvenirs!
  • Lumberjack Shows! Three times a day you can see these lumberjacks battle for number one at the Farm Bureau Celebration Park.

For more new entertainment, check out this.
