“Where’s Amy?” … Having a ball at the Indiana State Fair opening day. The day was jammed packed and kicked off with a giant hot air balloon launch. Other highlights included a free concert by the Indigo Girls and the first ever ‘Light Up the Night’ parade sponsored by Reynolds Farm Equipment. There were huge elephant ears, fried Velvet Oreo’s and mouthwatering milk shakes from the famous round Dairy Barn. I opted for the delicious standard pork sandwich, corn on the cob and fried green tomatoes – Yep, I said fried … Yikes, it’s not an easy place to go when counting calories. It was fun to see the farm animals and learn some facts from the educational exhibits throughout the buildings and halls. I even went on a Midway ride just for the thrill of it, and trust me, it was a hoot. The Indiana State Fair is a staple in our Indiana community and culture. I would encourage you to be adventurous and take the fair train from Fishers. It’s easy and something different for all ages to experience. Be sure to check out The Mac Reynolds Barn where you can grab some cool John Deere merchandise and climb aboard a huge tractor as big as a house. Ok, so I am joking about the house part but, trust me – the 2015 Indiana State Fair is celebrating the ‘Year of the Farmer’ and it’s pretty darn cool. “Where’s Amy?” … hanging out at the Indiana State Fair which runs until Aug. 23. You still have time to attend the fair, and I hope to see you there! For more info visit www.indianastatefair.com.
