Governor Eric Holcomb and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett will Tuesday formally welcome 50,000 visitors to Indy, most of them wearing blue jackets. The 94th National FFA Convention & Expo begins Wednesday. The event, which is one of the biggest conventions in Indy, was held virtually last year because of the pandemic.
This year it is an in-person convention but will include many virtual events for students and schools that could not travel to Indiana.
The four-day convention begins Wednesday and is being held at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center.
Holcomb and Hogsett will be joined by Visit Indy Chief Executive Leonard Hoops and National FFA CEO Scott Stump, and others, to celebrate and welcome back the teenage visitors.
