Fair Tries To Rejuvenate Tradition After Tragedy

08:01 AM Friday 8/3/12 |   |

The Indiana State Fair hopes to cast off the shadow of last year’s deadly stage collapse and restore its place as a traditional statewide reunion by dealing with its grief and pumping up its attractions.

The fair opens a 17-day run Friday with new safety procedures and plans to honor the seven people killed and dozens injured when high winds toppled a stage into a crowd of Sugarland fans before the country duo’s concert.

Fair officials hope this is a year of emotional and financial healing. Attendance and revenue fell last year after the collapse, and this year’s fairgoers will face higher ticket prices and a parking fee for the first time.

The grandstand where the collapse occurred won’t host concerts. Those have been moved to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
