INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 17, 2014) – The 2014 Indiana State Fair is officially in the books.

The 17-day event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds wrapped up Sunday.  Fair-goers enjoyed mostly nice weather, and all that great food, along with various shows and concerts and of course, the rides on the midway.

The newly-renovated coliseum was also a hit with both those in attendance and performers.

“The sound is incredible in there. So, the performers themselves were telling us how much better this building is, just acoustically. And we knew that already. But it’s really nice to hear it from the professionals and also from the fair-goers that came to see the concerts, said Andy Klotz with the State Fair.

For the first time since 1946, alcohol was served at the Indiana State Fair. The new exhibit was located at Grand Hall and featured various Indiana breweries and wineries.
