HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Officials predict as many as a half-million people will visit this year's Pennsylvania Farm Show.

The eight-day event kicks off Saturday in the sprawling farm show complex just off Interstate 81 in Harrisburg.

It is billed as the nation's largest indoor agricultural event, and admission is free.

Among the many attractions are rodeos, a huge food court and contests for everything from the best livestock to the tastiest apple pie.

The 95-year-old show gives farmers an opportunity to socialize and see whose products win blue-ribbon bragging rights. Non-farmers come for entertainment and an inside glimpse of Pennsylvania's agriculture industry.

The show runs through Jan. 15 — leaving just three days for workers to transform the space into the site of Gov.-elect Tom Corbett's inaugural ball.
