The Pioneer Village at Spring Mill State Park will come to life with historical re-enactors, crafts, demonstrations and musical entertainment during the 45th annual Candlelight Tour on Sept. 17.
The tour is from 4-9 p.m. and is sponsored by service sorority Kappa Kappa Kappa's Gamma Epsilon Chapter of Mitchell.
Dressed in traditional pioneer clothes, Tri Kappa members and their families and Spring Mill employees will recreate life in the mid-1800s in the houses and buildings of the restored Pioneer Village.
Visitors are asked to bring a flashlight.
There is a $5-per-vehicle entrance fee ($7 for out-of-state vehicles). The village tour is free.
Tri Kappa is a statewide sorority that supports many community and state charities and educational and cultural projects. The Mitchell chapter has sponsored the Spring Mill Candlelight Tour since 1967. It has become a popular kickoff event for the week-long Persimmon Festival in Mitchell.
