LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Preparations are well underway for the 8th Annual GermanFest.
The festival is the only fundraiser for Saint Boniface Church in Lafayette to pay for renovations for the church and school.
It's free to get in, but to get food, alcohol or to ride any carnival rides, you have to buy tickets.
To cut down on traffic near the festival, people attending can park at Saint Elizabeth Central and take a shuttle.
GermanFest Co-Chair Sheila Cochran says people can also try a brand new beer that was made specifically for this festival.
"We partnered with People's Brewery," Cochran said. "People's developed and brewed a German beer specific for St. Boniface and GermanFest. It can be bought in bottles and in kegs. We're real excited about that."
GermanFest starts at 4:30 and goes until 11 Saturday night.
Work is about to start in Evansville on a long-planned expansion of what is regarded as Indiana's oldest public library.
