For those of you that are not from around this area, this will be the 73rd Annual Persimmon Festival in Mitchell, Indiana. For those of you that don’t know what a Persimmon is… well, it’s hard to explain. It’s a small, orange fruit, that many individuals describe as tasting “puckery”. That may not sound appealing, but the community of Mitchell and Lawrence County have mastered the art of making this strange little fruit taste amazing in so many ways. You will have to come and taste for yourself! We promise that you will have a blast!

Don’t forget to check out the Candlelight Tour at Spring Mill State Park on Saturday, September 21.

We are excited to invite you to the Mitchell Persimmon Festival! This year’s theme is Mitchell, Around the World. Mitchell, Around The World, hopes to honor and spotlight Mitchell community members who have brought a little taste of “Mitchell’s Hoosier Hospitality” all across the globe, as well as those who have traveled from all corners of the planet to make Mitchell their hometown! The Persimmon Festival will feature food vendors, carnival rides, games and free live entertainment nightly featuring festival favorites The Endless Summer Band on Friday September 27th and the nation’s number one tribute to KISS, Mr. Speed on Thursday September 26th. The festival’s Grand Parade will be held Saturday September 28th at 2:00 pm.

Do you remember the ABC sitcom “Growing Pains” from the late 1980s? Do you remember little Mike Seaver? That is Kirk Cameron! His sister is Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J. Tanner on “Full House”). A lot of people don’t know this, but Kirk is an evangelical Christian with a number of religious films under his belt, such as, “Fireproof” and the “Left Behind” movies. He was also recognized by Indiana Wesleyan University into their Society of World Changers in 2012.

Kirk Cameron will be in Bedford, Indiana in May to put on his show “Living Room Reset”. During the show, Cameron will be speaking about the relationships between a husband and wife, as well as, the relationship between children and parents. The event is organized for couples in hopes to strengthen their relationships by teaching them how to pray, worship and learn together. Matt Hammitt, lead singer of Sanctus Real, will be on the show as a musical guest.
