Heritage and fun to be found at the Indiana State Fair
The Indiana State Fair kicks off this week. From Friday, Aug. 4, through Sunday Aug. 20, Hoosiers from all over will come to the state fairgrounds to enjoy and explore Indiana's history and traditions in fun and exciting ways.

The Indiana State Fair is known for its incredible food so it's only fitting that this year's fair theme is "The Wonderful World of Food." To celebrate Indiana's farms, each day will highlight different foods and spotlight the hardworking farmers who produce it. Visitors can try many of the featured foods and traditional fair favorites at more than 90 food stands throughout the fairgrounds. There is also Our Global Kitchen, which is an exhibit showcasing our interactions with our food, how food has shaped us and the complex system that gets our food from the farm to our tables.

If you think you've seen all the fair has to offer, there are plenty of new activities this year.
