Indianapolis (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Despite the hot weather the Indiana State Fair turned a profit.

The fair board reported that the state fair turned a half million dollar profit in 2012.

Fair attendance was lower than expected in 2012, and attendance at the concerts, which were moved from the grandstands to downtown Bankers Life Fieldhouse, was also less than expected. But higher admission prices, new infield parking fees and lower payroll costs added up to a profit.
