An Indiana State Fair Adventure with Nick and Alex.

As one of our state’s premier institutions, the Indiana State Fair provides an opportunity to connect with the finer points of Hoosier culture. Namely deep fried food, overpriced carnival games, and stinky livestock. It’s a captivating, sweaty experience with a certain je ne sais quoi you just can’t find anywhere else.

Which is why Nick Honeywell and Alex Mattingly decided to peruse this year’s Fair in hopes of discovering just what makes it so special. Is it dogs jumping through hoops? $500,000 tractors? Crappy carnival prizes? You’ll find all of these and much more in the video below—and we’ll let you decide.
