I have been going to the Indiana State Fair for as long as I can remember. The rides, food, music, animals, concerts, did I mention the FOOD? And as I recall my annual August trips to the fairgrounds - I also remember riding the FairTrain to get there. No traffic, no trouble parking and the fun of riding a train all wraps up into one great experience. I do recall having a little FairTrain anxiety - where do I park? What if I miss the train - can I catch another ride? What are the drop-off and pick-up times? So, below is some invaluable WFMS FairTrain information - please visit the itm.org for for even more details (and don't forget the 2009 Indiana State Fair is even longer than previous years, so you have from August 7-23 to go).
Tickets - you can buy the tickets at the Fishers Train Station. Cost is: Adults $13, Children 2-12 $6, Children 2 and under are free (don't forget to stop by a local Key Bank for discounted tickets. Indiana State Fair tickets can be purchased on the train or at the gate!
Pick-up/Drop-off - To get to the Fair, arrive about 30 minutes before departure at the Fishers Train Station, located at 11601 Municipal Drive. The train will then drop you off at the Fairgrounds Station (meet back there to get back to Fishers).
Parking - Parking at the Fishers Train Station is free.
UPDATE: ACCORDING TO THE INDY STAR - YOU CAN BUY ADVANCED TICKETS AT HALF THE COST. HERE IS THAT LINK FOR MORE INFO: http://ow.ly/ku7O
