Currently the Indianhead Council has only a medium sized booth at the State
Fair. It has about two or three people manning it during the fair, which is
going on right now through Labor Day.
There is talk of a large Scouting exposition to be held at the fair grounds.
However, this would not be held during the fair. It would be a separate
event with thousands of Scouts camping on the fair grounds.
