It’s a special time in Southern Indiana when summer begins slowly evolving into fall. The tree leaves cling to their green color as long as possible before turning into gorgeous shades of red, brown, and yellow, soon falling to the ground. Such is a time to celebrate at the Monroe County Fall Festival.
In a typical year, the festival includes a parade, food, live music, crafts, educational opportunities, and more. Due to the pandemic, this year will not have such festivities.
Though the Monroe County Fall Festival won’t be held this year, Smithville Media’s Rob Ramsey took a look back at the 50-year history of the festival and how volunteers can get involved in the future. Watch and see how community members can help make the next Fall Festival the biggest and best ever.
