Thank you to everyone who has donated so far!!!

Check out the events we have planned below:

We will start the day off with a free will offering breakfast at the Albany United Methodist Church to benefit the A Better Life: Brianna’s Hope chapter that meets at the church. Breakfast will be served from 8 – 10am on Broadway next to the church.

State Street will be closed from Mississinewa to Delaware from 10am – 6pm. We will have cars and vendors all along State Street from noon until 6pm.

Twisted Wrenches will again be hosting a car show along State Street. Cars will need to enter at Mississinewa and check in. They will be given instructions on where to park at that time. We would love to see your car in the show!

The side streets will be open so you will still be able to move about town. The businesses along State Street will be open for you to patronize.

The Fire Department will be having a hog roast starting at 11am at the fire station.

The police will once again be on hand to sell raffle tickets for two different rifles that will be drawn at the Halloween parade as well as providing free finger printing.

Emergency services vehicles will be set up in front of the Municipal building and along the bridge. I heard there may be cotton candy available!!

We will have antique tractors along S. Water Street. Stop by and check them out.

If you or your organization would like to have a booth, please call the Fire Department office at 765-789-6390 and leave your name, phone number, and what you are planning to have at your booth.

Some of the booths already signed up are Girl Scouts-Crafts & face painting and possible a pie throw, Delta Theta Tau-Bake Sale, American Legion-Corn Hole games, Tri Kappa-Lemon Shake Ups.

We have increased the fireworks budget this year to provide an awesome fireworks display at the end of the day. We are once again asking for donations to help cover part of the cost of the fireworks. Donations may be made at the Municipal Office. Our goal is to raise $5,000 as we have in the last few years. Check out the running total of how much has been raised by clicking the following link:

The best vantage point to watch the fireworks is at the ball diamond. The concession stand at the baseball diamond will be open as well as the Dairy Dream, Pete’s Bar & Grill and the Village Pantry.

Remember to bring your lawn chair and bug spray!
