Ferdinand Heimatfest 2013

I’m still relatively new in Dubois County. I’ve been here almost a year…but it’s not quite a full year yet. There are a lot of things that I haven’t had a chance to experience. One of those things is the Ferdinand Heimatfest.

I’ve heard the Heimatfest mentioned off and on since I moved to the area last August. And people have been mentioning it more and more recently because it’ll be coming up on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22! The more I hear about the Heimatfest…the more I want to go because it sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. I can’t make up my mind if I want to go Friday or Saturday because there are so many awesome events happening during  both of those days!

Ferdinand’s Heimatfest takes place at 18th Street Park in Ferdinand. Just in case you’re curious, here are some of the events that will be going on during Heimatfest:
