IND HEMP, a first-time sponsor of this event, set up a booth to inform the community about their hemp products and hemp operation. Featured at the booth were IND HEMP food products, including hemp seeds, hemp seed oil and hemp protein powder. They also showcased hemp fiber and the stages it goes through to become a final product in anticipation of their new fiber decortication facility, set to be open late September.

In addition to an IND HEMP booth, a booth featuring HEMPTANA product was also at this event. HEMPTANA is a product line offering hemp products to horses including hemp seed oil, hemp protein supersnacks, and hemp hulls.

With the whole community coming together to celebrate summer and support local business and artists, this was a prime location to educate locals and visitors alike about the many uses of hemp and hemp products.
