Indiana has been throwing this Hoosier party since 1851. The Indiana State Fairgrounds on east 38th St. have served as site for the bash since 1892. Over the past century, the Fair has become a late summer tradition, with its own train, rooster crowing contest, Farmer’s Day parade, hot air balloon race, harness racing, old-fashioned pancake breakfast, carnies with their Midway rides ans games of “chance,” a Queen pageant and the World’s Largest Drive-Thru Breakfast. What’s more? 2011 is the Year of the Soybean! Check it out: www.indianastatefair.com.
