Angie's List Bringing 50+ Experts to Indiana State Fair, Drawing for $5K Landscaping Makeover, Free Demonstrations, Games & Giveaways

INDIANAPOLIS, August 3, 2015 – Whether you go for the food, the Midway, the animals, the ribbon winners or some other attraction, chances are you’re going to need a respite from the crowds and the sun at the Indiana State Fair. Luckily, Angie’s List has you covered for all 17 days with its most expansive schedule ever.

Angie’s List staffers worked with Property Pros Landscaping to create a 17,000-square-foot oasis chock full of annuals, perennials and a few tropical plants. It’s tucked into the center of the fairgrounds just next to the Agriculture-Horticulture building and south of the covered bridge. The gardens are a great example of landscape options homeowners can take as inspiration for their own property.

Property Pros will collect names for a drawing that offers a $5,000 landscaping makeover grand prize as well as smaller prizes. Additionally, a wide array of home, health, pet and property service companies will share their experience and insights free-of-charge.  While you learn and relax, let your little ones play. Kids can battle it out in life-sized Jenga and Connect Four games; show of their artistic side with crafts for all ages; and play with pets from various, highly rated animal shelters and rescue operations.
