I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. August is the month when the Indiana State Fair is celebrated. This year it will be from August 1 thru 17. The year 2014 is marked as the “Year of the Coliseum” due to the renovation of the Shane Co. Coliseum with a $53 million face lift. The Indiana State fair have been showcasing and educating the general public about agriculture, maintaining and promoting Indiana’s agricultural heritage, current production methods and future developments, and entertaining the public.
