Tourists are descending upon Brown County in droves to view the changing colors of leaves in an annual ritual for the picturesque south central Indiana county.
Jane Ellis of the Brown County Visitors Bureau said Nashville and the surrounding county draw about 2 million "leaf peepers" each year, "and it seems that they all come this weekend."
Tim O'Bryan, co-owner of the Big Woods Brewing Company micro-brewery, says the tourists like to come out to see the changing of the leaves, and this year the colors are expect to great.
He says that if it weren't for the trees, Brown County wouldn't have quite as many visitors as it has.
