The Indiana State Fair says this summer’s event will honor "Heroes in the Heartland." Organizers say the 17-day event will spotlight Hoosier heroes including educators, first responders, military members and others. This year’s fair is set for August 2-18.
Fair leaders say the event will also feature superheroes from popular movies each day of its run.
Indiana Donor Network is partnering with the fair on this year’s theme. Chief Executive Officer Kellie Hanner says the fair will "help us shed more light on the important issue of donation and inspire more Hoosiers to be someone’s hero and register as organ, tissue and eye donors."
The fair is also seeking stories from Hoosiers about their personal heroes to use as part of their "Who’s Your Hero?" campaign. You can submit your story by clicking here.
