The Indiana State Fair has provided entertainment for Indiana citizens this month. The fairgrounds, located in Indianapolis, opened on Friday, Aug. 7 with plenty to offer to local, regional and state residents.

For $12, fair attendees can enjoy a variety of attractions, vendors, games and more. This gives fair-goers plenty of time to experience the many attractions, including the Queen Pageant, Car Show, Family Fun Park and the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand. Along with the exciting attractions comes a variety of vendors selling multiple kinds of delicious food, such as fried vegetables, smoked pig patties and elephant ears. To top it all off, the Midway is an entrance at the fairgrounds leading to a variety of rides and games for children, adults and families to take part in.

Daily concerts are also featured at the Indiana State Fair. Smaller stages, the Main Street Stage and Free Stage, showcase local talent and other types of acts. The Indiana Farmers Coliseum features bigger artists including Jake Owen and Parmalee, who performed Friday, August 14, and Meghan Trainor, who was set to perform Tuesday, Aug. 11 before she cancelled her tour. Unfortunately, the performance was cancelled due to the hemorrhaging of her vocal cords, but there were other performances to enjoy that night.

The Indiana State Fairgrounds will continue to impress with many events until Sunday, Aug. 23.
