Indiana State Fair: week 2 

Entertainment is the twin "E" to Education at the fair, free with admission. We started Week Two marveling at the dexterity and grace of the Peking Acrobats, especially amazed by the breathtaking ballet, here much more than traditional circus acts with ballerina on an elephant's back. Catch Peking Acrobats daily at Riley Fun Park. Changing every hour on Clarian Dance for Health Stage are hometown groups worth the stop. Hispanic/Latino Music Day on Aug. 9 featured the first Salsa Dance contest -- steamy, sultry and sensuous. Storytelling Arts of Indiana sponsored the Liars Contest Aug. 16 at the Pioneer Village Opry House. Both events will be back next year. Blarney is over the top daily with Hedrick's Racing Pigs at Riley Fun Park and skill with saws propels the Lumberjack Show at Celebration Park. A ticket for the evening stars on stage at the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand also pays for a day at the fair. Sandi Patty's "Broadway with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra" on Aug. 11 featured the rich male roles she'd "never get cast to play." Oak Ridge Boys with Larry Gatlin headline on Aug. 19. The fair continues through Aug. 23;
