BEANGO!

By Chris an ISA State Fair Intern

Hey there!
When it comes to the State Fair, you can’t beat all the unique food and fun flavors! Did you know that this year, there is a way you can get free food at the Indiana State Fair and have fun while doing it?  That’s right!
This year at the Indiana State Fair, you can play BEANGO!  Eight larger-than-life soybeans will be on display all around the fairgrounds.  The giant soybeans will include everything from a farmer, to a pig to a chicken! 
While on the grounds, you can play a game by visiting each of these big beans, answering questions and getting BEANGO!  Get three facts correct in a row on the BeanGo card and come back to the Indiana Soybean exhibit in the Pioneer Our Land Pavilion for a coupon for a free pork burger, milkshake, or an all-beef hotdog. (Did you know that most of the soybeans raised in Indiana go to feed livestock, like pigs, chickens and cows?)  If you complete the Beango game card, we will have an extra special prize for you!
The free BeanGo cards will be available through an app on both iPhone and Android as well as a game card that you can find in the State Fair program or at our exhibit. You can also look for the game card in the state fair program.    As you walk around the fair, be on the lookout for these soybeans.  They are your ticket to free food. 
Look for soybeans all over the fair, and look for me at our booth in the Pioneer Our Land Pavilion.  I hope to see you there!


To get the State Fair celebration started, we are giving away a family 4 pack of State Fair tickets to on Indiana's Family of Farmer reader! Just leave us a comment in the blog comment area (make sure to leave your email address) and we will choose a winner by random on Friday! Good luck!
