TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The 52nd annual Feast of the Hunters' Moon is underway.
On Saturday, thousands of people came out for day-two of the event. It was created to celebrate the cultures of those who once lived at or near Fort Ouiatenon in the 1700s.
30-acres of the park ground has been dedicated to the festival. It offers live music, activities, crafts and of course food to feast.
Event Manager Leslie Martin Conwell said it's the community that has kept this event successful all these years.
“When everybody comes together the community comes together we get outsiders from many different states to come to help us celebrate the fall and all of the cultures that were here,” said Conwell.
Conwell said it's beneficial for for more than those who attend.
“This is so unique with everything that's offered here and people get attached to it, I mean, there's over 50 nonprofits that are here, that are raising funds,” said Conwell.
The event will be held on Sunday Oct. 6 at Fort Ouiatenon Park from 9 to 4 p.m. You can find the schedule of events here.
