Liz Bowman has made lots of great memories out here at the fair, but nothing will top what happened today. The 83-year-old Indianapolis woman was honored by the fair and Governor Mitch Daniels for her unwavering devotion to the Great Indiana State Fair.
It's hard to believe, but she's been to every day of every fair for the last 62 years! And she doesn't just ride the tractor shuttle around all day. She still visits different spots and loves all the people she gets to meet.
Take a look at today's recognition. She called today the best day of her life outside of when her children were born, and her display of emotion was quite touching. Thanks for coming to the fair all those years, Liz... we love you!
