The Indiana State Fairgrounds on a discount

The Indiana State Fair is back so I thought this would be a great opportunity to write up about how you can get discounts to get into the fair.  Today is the day to buy the Indianapolis star for the coupon which allows you to get into the fair for free on Wednesday, August 7th.  Another popular day to go is on $2 Tuesday.  There is a coupon which can be printed from Turkey Hill and for $2, you can get into the fair, which is greatly discounted.  There were many other discounts for getting into the fair I wasn’t aware of.  For the full details on discounts, you can visit or see below as I have copied and pasted the information into the blog:
