INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Fair will last 17 days for at least the next three years under a vote by the panel that oversees the annual summer event.
The Indiana State Fair Commission on Thursday approved a recommendation to have the fair run 17 days through 2013.
The fair expanded from 12 days to 17 days in 2009. Officials said the longer run would give families a third weekend to visit and create more opportunities for 4-H participants.
