The Arcadia May Festival is a 2 day action packed annual event that has crafts, a flea market, games, food and a moonwalk (to entertain the young ones or those young at heart). I had the pleasure of going this past weekend and among the rain drops I took in all that the May Festival has to offer. I was also excited because for the first year this event was taking place on the street of downtown Arcadia, Indiana instead of at the local park. I watched as an Historic Train pulled up to the Depot carrying passengers eager to enjoy the Festival. Because of the rain there were not as many vendors as in years past (usually around 30), but the attendees did not mind. Grandparents, parents and children all walked around & then gathered together at 1 pm for a live show. I spent a great deal of time looking through antique shops & spent a while in Tabby Tree Weaver (a must see if you are in Arcadia). As I was leaving the sun was starting to peak through the clouds, so I know that the Festival continued well into the evening. The 2nd day of the had much better weather! A local DJ spun "Golden Oldies" tunes during a car show, while an Elvis impersonator greeted attendees. The train continued to drop off families and live entertainment played into the evening. It was such a great time that I am already looking forward to next May!
