The Fort Wayne Youtheatre will present a musical revue titled “Celebrate Indiana.” A pie baking contest will be followed by an auction, with profits donated to the Allen County Fairgrounds. The painted bison for Allen County and the Bicentennial Barn Quilt will be on display all day. Order forms for the bicentennial book and coin will be available.
