It’s almost time for the Great Indiana State Fair! The fair runs from August 6-22, 2010 and we’ll be posting about all sorts of ways you can save money while enjoying the great events going on at the fair. Keep an eye out on the Indiana Insider Blog for some upcoming posts!
We’ve had our Visit Indiana booth at the Indiana State Fair for years now, and this year is no different. We’re located inside the Expo Hall, near the 38th street entrance to the Fairgrounds. When you enter the Expo hall, we’ll be straight ahead – about 6 booths down on your left side. If you drop by the booth you can pick up an Indiana Travel Guide, Indiana Travel Map, Indiana Festival Guide or an Indiana Golf Guide (You can also order those and many more brochures, shipped FREE to your home on the VisitIndiana.com Brochure Order Page).
We’d love for you to stop by the booth and say hi while you pick up an Indiana travel publication. And, this year, we’re offering a couple new ways to interact with us at the State Fair (and you’ll have a chance to win some prizes, too).
The first opportunity you’ll have to win a prize at our State Fair booth is by answering a daily trivia question (or two) posted to the Visit Indiana Facebook page. We’re working with cities, towns and attractions throughout Indiana and we have at least one prize giveaway each day (most days we’ll have two)! Simply Like us on Facebook and check out our Facebook page each day throughout the State Fair (Aug 6-22). We’ll ask a daily trivia question and if you’re one of the first 10 people to give us the correct answer at our Visit Indiana State Fair Booth, you’ll receive a prize from one of the great cities, towns or attractions in Indiana! It may be a t-shirt, it may be tickets to an upcoming attraction or a goody-bag. But you have to answer the daily question for us at our booth to win!
If you have an account on Foursquare, be sure to check-in at our Visit Indiana State Fair Booth while you’re at the fair. Just by checking-in, you’re automatically entered to win a FREE overnight at the Conrad Hotel (@ConradIndpls on Twitter) in downtown Indianapolis! While you’re at it, become our friend on Foursquare.
