The Feast of the Hunters' Moon

Yep, it's that time of year again for one of this area's biggest shindigs along the mighty, although right now it's looking a bit puny, Wabash River.  The Feast of the Hunters' Moon is a weekend trip back to the 1790's when this area was inhabited by Indians, fur traders, and lots of animals.  This is an incredible opportunity to introduce your kids to our state's history, and see how people lived, ate, and celebrated life then.

The location is south west of the Lafayette/West Lafayette area.  You would need to find South River Road and follow the traffic.  There is usually bus service from Purdue and other areas as well.  Here is a link to the event's website for more information:  http://www.tcha.mus.in.us/feast.htm

I will leave you with some of my favorite pics from our trip there a couple of years ago.  Tink is on her way out there today with about half her school.  The few days before the event, school kids can go and have more close and personal sessions with the vendors and historians there making furniture and life staples just like they did before Indiana was a state. Can't wait to hear all her stories!.








Hope you make it up for the Feast!
