The Indiana Department of Transportation has issued a permit to close the intersection of Ind. 56 and 156 Saturday morning, Aug. 23, for the Swiss Wine Festival Parade at Vevay that proceeds from Main Street to the fairgrounds.
As many as 90 floats, antique cars and marching units will participate in this year’s parade which marks the 42nd year of wine fest events staged along the riverfront focusing on the rich cultural heritage of Switzerland County. Local police will direct traffic around the 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. closure.
Vevay’s four-day festival features wine pavilion and beer garden, an array of food vendors, arts and crafts, polka dancers and children in Swiss costumes, games and concerts.
