It’s one of Illiana’s largest tourist attractions. The Covered Bridge Festival – in Parke County, Indiana. And it’s getting underway today (Friday).
The kick-off of the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival finds organizers promoting the 60th annual event.
If you plan on visiting the Covered Bridge Festival, there are a couple of ways you can enjoy seeing the 31 historic bridges. Self-guided routes with directions will guide you to the various covered bridges. And there are bus tours that happen daily during the Festival that take you from Rockville and take you to some of the smaller towns that you wouldn’t necessarily go to when you’re traveling by car.
There are two information booths on the square in Rockville, plus a Visitor’s Center is located three blocks east of the square. For more information visit the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival at www.coveredbridges.com.
