Countdown to the Indiana State Fair

6.85 weeks
48 days
1,152(ish) hours

until the Indiana State Fair: Celebrating the Hoosier Spirit opens in Indianapolis.

It’s something my family looks forward to all summer.  We all have our favorite reasons to love the Indiana State Fair:

Ice cream cones from the Dairy Bar, hot buttered corn, walks through the swine barn to see the World’s Largest Boar and the newest litter of piglets, rides on the Midway (if Mom and Dad are feeling generous).  And of course escapes from the heat into the Home & Family Arts and 4-H Buildings to see all the things made by Hoosier hands — young and old.

This year, those masters of entertainment at the fair have come up with more great things to entice people to make the State Fair a great way to bring the summer to a close, including free shows by MC Hammer, Sandi Patty, Mapapa African Acrobats, REO Speedwagon and the Xtreme Action Sports Show to name a few.

Not that you need more convincing to ink the Indiana State Fair on your calendar, but just in case, check out this video preview:
