As the days and leaves fade into Fall, there are just a few warm weekends in Lafayette, IN to truly soak up. As pools close and prepare for winter, there are still many ways to stay cool. Not to mention, you can enjoy this fine weather that makes our Midwestern hearts go pitter-pat! Stay tuned! When Fall hits full force, there are many festivals and treats happening in our area over the next few months. For now, however, here’s a list we’ve gathered of wonderful ways to create memories around Lafayette, Indiana and wrap up the warmth in the air before winter arrives…
- Starry Night (Chauncey Hill; West Lafayette, IN): “Starry Night is an annual street festival in downtown West Lafayette that draws thousands of people with its unique blend of excellent music, a variety of merchants, interactive creativity, and delicious food. The festival is designed to bring the Purdue and Greater Lafayette communities together and seeks to promote awareness of Swipe Out Starvation, a campus organization concerned with the issue of hunger on a local and global scale. Starry Night is hosted by Purdue’s Christian Campus House and Greyhouse Coffee and – thanks to our generous sponsors – is free! Come and be part of this amazing night!” This event is Saturday, September 29th, 2018, but click here to view the Facebook Event Page for more information.
- Go camping at Prophetstown State Park to best enjoy the crisp end of summer nights. Then, consider tubing down the Wildcat Creek or Tippecanoe River during the day! Fun for all ages, shapes and sizes!
- Prophetstown State Park is also loaded with paved trails, fun for kids (including the Farm!), fishing access, and more. This is always a fun, safe place to land for families! Think about taking Fall family photos here too!
