2014 Indiana State Fair Is a Wrap

Indiana-State-Fair-MidwayThe 2014 Indiana State Fair is officially in the books, and with over 950,000 visitors, it is the third largest attendees fair in history. We accounted for a tiny portion of those visits and loved every minute. The farm babies were adorable, as always. The award-winning produce, animals, home goods, and oddities were super fun to see. The food was simply amazing. And, Midway Kids’ Day was a huge hit.

Here are a few highlights from the best 17 days in Indianapolis:

2014 Indiana State Fair Queen, Alyssa Garnett, also won the annual celebrity cow-milking competition.
