WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Tippecanoe County is heading back to the early 1700s with the annual Feast of the Hunters' Moon.
The event is a recreation of an annual autumn gathering of the French and Native Americans. The gathering will take place at Fort Ouiatenon Historic Park on South River Road. Participants will have the chance to re-enact what it was like to live in the early 1700s.
Every year thousands of people attend the event from all across the country.
Tippecanoe County Historical Association Executive Director Craig Hadley says food is the biggest attraction.
“We have people who every year come for the food, and the one thing I find really unique about the Feast, is that since it's been going on for 52 years, you can ask anyone who lives in this county and they all have a Feast story,” stated Hadley.
Hadley says people come from all over the country just to attend.
"I was talking to a lady yesterday who is flying from Pennsylvania just to come to the Feast. So, we get people from all over the United States, and Canada just for this festival," added Hadley.
City Bus will provide transportation from the Purdue Football stadium. Parking for the event is free. Tickets at the gate cost $13 for adults and $7 for children.
Tickets you can find in advance, at their website, will cost $10 for adults and $5 for children.
The event is set to begin this Saturday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Activities on Sunday will start at 9:00 A.M. and will wrap up at 4:00 P.M.
No pets will be allowed at the festival.
