Covered Bridge Festival

One of the most popular fall festivals in Western Indiana is the Covered Bridge Festival.  The Covered Bridge Festival is a huge arts and crafts festival held every October.  There are a few locations to choose from, all of the locations have a covered bridge you can visit on site as well as arts, crafts and food.

The Covered Bridge in Bridgeton, IN.

It's been years since I've visited the festival so I recruited my mother and grandmother to go with me this year.  We chose the Bridgeton site to visit.  I don't remember much since the last time I visited because I was still in grade school, so this was like a brand new experience.  I was amazed at the amount of people in attendance.  At some points the streets were filled, shoulder to shoulder.  Shoppers had a huge variety of items to choose from.  Antiques, seasonal decor and bargain items were all on hand. 

The amount of food was insane!  There were two full streets of food vendors and food stands throughout the festival at other locations.  Every kind of festival food was available.  I chose a loaded baked potato.  Before I left the festival I also indulged in a pumpkin ice cream waffle cone -- which was perfect for a fun fall day!

I'm not sure if I will make the Covered Bridge Festival a priority to attend next year -- but it did make for a fun outting.  I also was able to find a few, good priced autumn decorations for my house, which in my opinion made it worth the trip to Indiana.
