Indiana State Fair

Being from Indiana, the annual state fair is something the family looks forward to year-round. Unfortunately, as I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, this weekend the festivities took a scary turn with the tragic events that unfolded on Saturday evening. Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.

In light of these recent events, it’s more important than ever to show your Indiana pride. The fair’s calendar of events has been adjusted, but will be going strong through August 21, and I hope you can make it out.

This year’s event took on special meaning for the Linnea’s Lights team in particular as we helped celebrate the year of the soybean! A key ingredient in our candles, we combine natural soy wax, lead-free cotton candlewicks, pure essences and fine fragrances to create clean burning, perfectly scented and highly aromatic candles. Today, farmers in more than 30 states grow soybeans, making soybeans the United States’ second largest crop in cash sales and the No. 1 value crop export. Find out more fun facts and support your local farmers at the fair. Be safe and we’ll see you there!
