One of the great things about the Indiana State Fair is that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Families with kids -- there is plenty of entertainment to captivate young and old alike!
Bixby's Rainforest Rescue show in the Family Fun Park is a must-see on a family outing. I am 22 years old and I still said "awww!" when DJ the lemur pranced out on stage on a leash. Not only is this a cute animal show, but it is also educational. It's a fun way for kids to learn a little bit about the rainforest.
While you're in the area, you can stroll on over to the Flippenout Extreme Trampoline Show. This is a little different from jumping on the family trampoline in the backyard. They do triple flips, walk up a wall and -- oh yeah -- jump with skiis and snowboards attached to their feet! Be ready to clap and cheer because these athletes feed off your energy!
And that'll just get you started! If you're out here Aug. 12-13, you can take the kids to see The Ohmies at the Free Stage. They'll have everyone dancing and singing along to their upbeat show. Little Hands on the Farm has been a family favorite for several years, giving kids the chance to experience farm life in a fun and interactive way. Finally, the Kids' Day Midway Special is coming up on Aug. 13, with unlimited rides for kids from noon-10 p.m. for just $15.
We'll see you and your family out at the fair!
