Highlights of Free Activities for All Ages (#INStateFair)

Here is a quick list of some of my favorite free activities and exhibits to see at the fair:

  1. Super Dogs – Located in the Dow AgroSciences Celebration Park with three daily shows (check program for times). I mentioned this earlier for families, but all ages will enjoy this show. The dogs are funny, talented and entertaining.
  2. DuPont Food Pavilion – New programming this year that is wonderful! With daily samples, the cheese sculpture and new Purdue kid-friendly exhibit this is one air-conditioned building you will want to stop into!
  3. Free Ice Cream courtesy of Turkey Hill. Gotta love this stop located in front of the Communications Building on the southeast end of the fairgrounds.
  4. Canstruction. This has been one of my favorites for years. See the creations that local businesses make. Amazing. And even better – the food is donated after the fair to the hungry.
  5. Ford Dance Stage – Close to the free ice cream on the southeast end of the grounds, you never know what type of dancing you will encounter. Today … cloggers!
