INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana State Fair is getting underway with its massive hot-air-balloon launch Friday morning, and RTV6 was there to take it all in.
The fair comes with its usual confections and hearty treats as well as alcoholic drinks for the first time in nearly 70 years.
Friday's start of the fair also marks the return of paid concerts in the fairgrounds' newly renovated coliseum after those concerts were suspended following the deadly 2011 stage collapse.
This year's fair runs through Aug. 17 and will mark the first time alcohol has been served on the fairgrounds since 1946.
Fair officials say visitors will be limited to three beers or three glasses of wine apiece. They also can sample products as long as they don't have more than 36 ounces of beer or 15 ounces of wine.
