The Foundation of Art and Music in Education (FAME) Festival hit off its ninth year in Wabash by celebrating Chinese culture on Saturday April 18.
From hosting a dragon dance to the assistant artist of Garfield, the festival astonished locals and a few out-of-towners by the talent and the artwork, according to Richard Tucker, volunteer greeter.
“What I’ve heard more than anything else is surprise,” Tucker said. “They don’t realize the volume of activities that are going on here and I think that’s great that they see that there’s a lot of activities that they can participate in.
“When I looked through the schedule of activities today, you can keep a child busy for the whole day and I think the depth of the programming is a big surprise.”

Wabash River Road has new route
By Joseph Slacian
Wabash County’s portion of the Wabash River Road is changing its route.
Wabash County Commissioners, at its April 13 meeting, approved the change, which was requested by Michael Beauchamp, the county’s representative on the Wabash River Heritage Corridor Commission.
The route was first approved five years ago, Beauchamp reminded commissioners. It is part of a route that continues for more than 400 miles through all 19 counties in which the Wabash River flows.
“It’s taken a while to get that plan worked out,” he said, noting that, “some of those roadways are pretty tough in Southern Indiana because they’re underwater for part of the year, and they’re dirt roads.”
