County fairs are a great way to experience local American cultures! Every summer, there are fairs all over the country where people gather to eat really delicious junk food, watch some amazing shows, ride some rides, and observe the products of area farmers. (This means you can see the greatest sheep, goats, rabbits, cows, horses, pigs, and more). In addition, there are many kinds of crafts that children and adults have made during the year.
Click here on the Delaware County Fair link to see more information about what's going on this week in Muncie. The fair is located across from Minnetrista. From the Fair website, you should click on pictures to get a better idea of what to expect. You should also look carefully at the schedule of events to decide when the best time would be for you to visit in order to get the most out of your experience.

Happy Birthday, America!!
July 4th is Independence Day - the day America became an independent nation. Every year we celebrate this day by gathering with family friends to enjoy picnics and fireworks.
I hope you will join me and other IEI teachers and students on the Minnetrista grounds for this year's celebration. Bring friends, family, and something to sit on like a blanket or a chair. If you want, you can bring drinks and food as well.
The fun begins at 8 pm with America's Hometown Band playing live music outdoors.
Then when the sun goes down, the fireworks will begin! The fireworks display happens at Muncie Central High School and they are shot across the river. We will have great seats for the show from the Minnetrista grounds.
Cost is FREE!
How to get there:
From the Ball State campus and RB building, go east to Wheeling Rd. At the traffic light there at Wheeling, you will see the entrance into the Minnetrista grounds. Go into the grounds and follow the directions to a parking place. Go to the main Minnestrisa building and you will see a lot of people out on the grass. Walk around the building (follow the sounds of the music) and you will find me. I will have a flag or a balloon or something high in the air so you can easily see me.
What to bring: You do not need to bring anything, but here are some things you might want to bring -
- blanket or chair
- food and/or drinks
- outdoor games
