Fair Time! Saluting Hoosier Trees

This year's Indiana State Fair (6-17 August) will highlight our Indiana trees through programming and events -- plus 50 newly planted trees around the grounds.

"Olympics of the Forest Lumberjack Show" features four of the "strongest lumberjacks in the country" who will "amaze you with log rolling, cross cut sawing, and ax throwing" in the Farm Bureau Celebration Park. Three 35-35 minute shows are scheduled each of the 12 days of the fair.

And, oh yeah, there'll be deep-fried Twinkies, the Indiana Dairy Association's famous milkshakes and the Indiana Pork Producers' pork chop dinners. Yumm.

See it all here before heading to the fairgrounds, 1200 East 38th Street, Indianapolis.
