Preparations are ongoing for the opening of the Indiana State Fair at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Aug. 1, 2012 photo, in Indianapolis. The Indiana State Fair opens Friday with many changes after last year's deadly stage collapse and hopes of promoting healing as organizers try to move beyond the shadow of the collapse. But there will be many changes, no concerts at the grandstand, higher ticket prices, paid parking that once was free. Fair officials say there are new offerings too, including more concerts on a newly regulated free stage.
