Visitors to the upcoming Indiana State Fair will get a unique look at the Pepsi Coliseum.


The Coliseum is in the midst of a multi-million dollar renovation. Executive Director Cindy Hoye says visitors will be able to walk through and see how it's progressing. Hoye says all of the livestock shows are taking place in the 30,000 square foot Youth Arena next door. Hoye says this year's fair will feature plenty of free entertainment including Styx. Hoye says work on North and East side exteriors of the Coliseum is basically done with new glass block.

The newly renovated Coliseum is set to open next summer. The fair begins August 2nd and runs through the 18th. Exhibitors and participants are already busy setting up.
