Family Fun at the Fair

By Sarah the Intern


The Indiana State Fair is fun for all ages!  The following are events, exhibits, and other excitement that you will not want to miss with your children at the fair.
The Wonder Trail.  Kids can earn prizes as they learn about agriculture on their Wonder Trail journey around the fair.  Visitors can pick up the information and the map in the Indiana Farm Bureau building to begin the adventure!
Book Readings with Buttercup.  Buttercup the cow has an exciting story to share every day at 6:00 in front of the Dairy Bar.  She will even be giving away and signing books!
Little Hands on the Farm.  Kids up to age twelve are welcome to try their hand at farming as they make their way through this exhibit in the Family Fun Park.

FREE Baby Bottle Fill-Ups!  Yep, you read that correctly!  The Dairy Bar fills up baby bottles with milk absolutely free of charge.
Cowtown USA.  This exhibit in the Family Fun Park lets visitors milk cows and participate in every step from cow to tasting of cheese, butter, and milk.  It’s open from 9-8 every day!
BeanGo.  Stop by BeanGo Land to learn about some of Indiana’s most important crops and to win great prizes (including free ice cream)!

Fuel Up to Play 60.  Let them burn some energy in this tent as they learn the importance of exercise.  They can take away some giveaways along with their new knowledge!
The Pioneer Village.  Watch demonstrations of pioneer life that vary from music to quilting to dairy farming, and maybe pick up some penny candy on your way out!

The state fair facilitates learning and a whole lot of fun!  From our Family to yours, have a great day at the fair!
