Section of State Road 135 to close for Nashville festival

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has officially issued a permit allowing the closure of a portion of State Road 135 for Nashville’s Spring Blossom Parade on Saturday, May 7. INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that the north-south highway will close, just north of State Road 46, from School House Lane/Washington Street to Mound Street from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Organizers say that the theme for the 53rd annual Spring Blossom Festival is “Brown County Celebrates Our Super Heroes.” They say that this theme will be exhibited through costumed participants, a variety of floats, vintage cars and performance groups. Organizers say that the Batmobile from the 1960’s TV series will be a featured exhibit as the parade treks along State Road 135, Artist Drive, Main Street and School House Lane, beginning at 11 a.m.

INDOT says that local law enforcement will be directing drivers around the parade site.
