Today, the Indiana State Fair folks will be announcing the first round of acts to be performing this summer. They include Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, MercyMe (with Lafayette native Jeremy Camp opening), Sandi Patty and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (nice to see the ISO players in the mix) and "Camp Rock" star Demi Lovato (for the Disney Channel crowd).
Also being announced: The inclusion of Indiana MusicFest, headlined by Jon McLaughlin and featuring The Elms and The Why Store.
This year's Fair runs Aug. 7-23. And, for the record, it's "The Year of Tomatoes." Just remember: No throwing them at the stage.
Look for more information to be posted at www.indianastatefair.com.
