It’s State Fair Time!

For the first time in many years, I will be at the Indiana State Fair!  I’ve never been much of a fair goer, but this year will be different because I will be helping to man the Homes For Heros booth with The Shanley Team from Inlanta Mortgage.  We will be in the Expo Hall and working with Heros to help them fulfill their dreams of home ownership!  Make sure you stop by to learn more about the program and get some candy!

The Indiana State Fair continues to be the one event which brings families together to experience the very best of Indiana! With 17 days of entertainment, exhibits and delicious food spread out over 250 acres – there truly is FUN AT EVERY TURN!  Cick here to plan your visit!

This year is the Year of Popcorn:

Light and fluffy, sometimes sweet or salty, popcorn is one of America‘s favorite snack foods. In Indiana, that means big business. The Hoosier state is the nation’s second largest popcorn producer, which is why popcorn will be the featured product at the 2013 Indiana State Fair.

And to add to the fun, The Indiana State Fair has plans to break a world record this year.  Officials decided to create the world’s largest popcorn ball.  Weighing in at more than 5,000 pounds, the ball of popcorn was constructed by workers at Snax In Pax in Topeka, Indiana.  Popcorn is in the fair spotlight to showcase the importance of the industry to the agricultural economy.  Did you know that Indiana is the second largest producer of popcorn in the country.

So…I’ll be there…will you?
