The Tippecanoe Arts Federation is celebrating 15 years of Gallery Walks this weekend. It's the first one of the year from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Attendees can take a stroll through downtown Lafayette and enjoy live music and refreshments. If you are unable to make it to this gallery walk there will be one in July and one in September.

Another fun event happening this weekend, a Cemetery Walk at Grand View Cemetery in West Lafayette. The theme is artists and musicians buried in the cemetery. Community Historic Project Support, or CHiPS, is hosting the event. This is the fourth cemetery walk.
Speakers will tell stories of the lives of eight artists and musicians, althought there are many more buried in the cemetery. There will also be outdoor painters and live music. Shelley Lowenber-Doboer, CHiPS Chairperson, said there will be scribes with each speaker so visitors can share any of their relations to, or stories about the late artist or musician.

"You might be surprised at who's telling the stories. So I always tell people I'm not gonna tell you who they are, but sometimes if you turn up, somebody pretty interesting will be telling those stories," Lowenber-Doboer said.

Admission to the artists and musicians cemetery walk is free. Attendees are asked to please park on Highland, Grant or Carrolton streets and walk across Salisbury to the cemetery entrance. A table will be set up if you would like to donate to the caretaker's house renovation fund.

The event is this Sunday from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. It weather permitting. Lowneber-Doboer told News 18 if the event is canceled, CHiPS plans to reschedule.
