Yippee! It’s the Year of Soybeans! Uh, at the Indiana State Fair, that is.
Okay, so maybe it’s not that exciting. I liked it better when it was the year of the pig, and I got to try several different pork dishes when I was at the Indiana State Fair, but still, we grow a lot of soybeans here in Indiana, and it makes me proud to know that my state helps feed the world. So what better place to celebrate that than at the Indiana State Fair.
This will be my fourth year at the Indiana State Fair, and every year I go back, I always look forward to the stuff I can see. I spent several years working in the animal production industry, and while I never mixed in with the animals themselves, I spent a lot of years talking with the people who did. So I know the Fair, know what goes into it, and how it’s a great reflection of what the state of Indiana is really like. (Yes, there is life outside I-465.) (These are photos from the 2010 Indiana State Fair.)
This year, I’m looking forward to a few things, some old favorites, some new treats:
I usually spend a whole day with my family at the fair, but this year, I’m going to play Media Man and hang out at the Fair a few more times on my own. Be sure to check this blog for photos, videos, and articles about what you can see at the Indiana State Fair, at 38th and Fall Creek in Indianapolis.
