Indian Lake State Park to host 35th Annual Fall Festival

LAKEVIEW — One of the most popular fall events in Logan County, the Indian Lake State Park Fall Festival returns for a 35th year, with more than 100 art and craft displays, food concessions and music by local entertainers, including Indian Lake’s own singing duo, BJ and Billie, and the popular dance troupe, The Cloggers, from Jo Anne’s School of Dance in Marion. Event organizers say the festival attracts more than 15,000 people each year.

Some vendors will be open on the grounds tonight, from 4 to 8 p.m., but most of the action will happen Saturday and Sunday, including free children’s activities such as pony rides, a train ride on Grandpa’s Express, and bow and arrow shooting. Park staff will hand out fresh-pressed cider both days. Hay wagons will shuttle visitors from the parking lot to the festival area. The festival is located two miles north of Lakeview on state Route 235N.
