Today was a fairly laid-back day at the Indiana State Fair.

Mom and I watched the Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance contest. I always enjoy the competition, part of the judging criteria is the history of the recipe and you are encouraged to set a tableau of family items for the presentation of the recipe. 

We took toured the Home and Family Arts Building - nothing better for your ego than your mom cooing over your ugly lamp! We cruised to the FFA Market for our annual Clay City Pottery bowl purchase. 

Just as I was walking Mom to her car, Dad cruised into the Fairgrounds with Aaron, a visitor from Iowa. This was Aaron's first visit to the Indiana State Fair.

We watched the Daily Parade with our Dairy Bar treats in hand. 


The parade was lousy with members of the Red Hat Society - it's a thing, check it out here.

We popped into the Indiana Beer & Wine Exhibition and had the happy surprise of hearing Tad Armstrong and Stasia Demos play. Good stuff!

#selfiewithafarmer American Honey Princess, Hayden Wolf, is a bee farmer. She and her family have a dozen hives. 

My picks for Friday: 

11:00 AM - Architectural Tour - The tram tour will give you a history of the grounds and detail information about many of the buildings. [meet at the DNR Building Tractor Tram stop] 

2:00 & 7:00 PM - Knights of Valour - jousting! [Grandstand] 

5:00 PM - Indiana Radio Show [Pioneer Village Opry House]
