Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.
The Tippecanoe Amphitheater is coming alive this summer with live musical bands jamming the night away! This Friday, August 15, enjoy the show, Fabulous Motown Revue, featuring many players who were actually “walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk” in the heart of the 60's Motown Movement. That's the secret to their success. Performing together for over 25 years, many members of The Fabulous Motown Revue have played with The Four Tops, Martha Reeves, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Mary Wilson, The Temptations, and many other Motown favorites.
In nearby Carroll County, enjoy all the wonderful flavors of bacon at the inaugural Indiana Bacon Festival presented by Indiana Kitchen Bacon. The event will be held on the square in Delphi, Indiana, and will feature Indiana Kitchen bacon and brew’s from local breweries. Enjoy live music, a cook-off, and MORE! A Kid Zone will run 11 a.m.-3:00 p.m. with games and activities just for kids, including a “Treasure Hunt”, “Make and Take Mud Pudding”, face painting, and kids music with DJ Bill Shidler. Best of all is the "Bacon-Eating Contest", sponsored by the Delphi Rotary Club will begin at 6:30 p.m. We love bacon here in Indiana and we are so excited to have the first ever Indiana Bacon Festival in our backyard!
