Fair starts amid heat wave

August 9, 2010

Indiana State Fair organizers hope the extreme heat won't keep people away this week. As temperatures continue to rise into the 90s once again, water and shade will be in high demand, but organizers also said they’ll try to help Hoosiers beat the heat while they enjoy the fair. They're going to have misting stations and lemonade stands about every 20 feet for people walking along the grounds. Police, medics and the Red Cross will also be on patrol for anyone having trouble.
