    The popular Indigo Girls played a free concert to hundreds of fans on opening night at the Indiana State Fair. “Where’s Amy?” was there to catch the excitement and ran into Kelly Vrtis and Laura Shanley both of Carmel. These Indigo Girl fans and longtime friends took in the concert while their husbands took their kids on rides in Kiddie Land. Vrtis said she was enjoying the night off and loved her refreshing iced tea with squeezed lemons. Stanley said she never misses an issue of Current in Carmel and was excited to be included in the “Where’s Amy?” column.

    "Where’s Amy?” … I was joking around with my favorite pal Michael Lawson of Reynolds Farm Equipment just minutes before the new 'Light Up the Night' tractor parade started. Lawson, a longtime Noblesville resident made his dreams come true and organized the spectacular show for fairgoers of all ages. I was honored to witness the first ever tractor parade highlighting farmers. The crowd cheered as lighted tractors rolled down the dirt track. The sight was amazing. A new tradition at the Indiana State Fair was born.
