Bartholomew County’s largest outdoor festival is expected to bring up to 30,000 people to Hope this weekend.
The 52nd annual Hope Heritage Days kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday afternoon with music, more than 125 vendors and an array of food booths in the Hope Town Square. The food vendors are all local not-for-profit groups, many who generate the largest part of their funding from the annual event.
Saturday night’s entertainment includes Five Lights starting at 5:30 p.m. at the main stage on Jackson Street, Hope native Danny Anderson on the bandstand at 7 p.m. and featured performers E5C4P3, a Journey tribute band, will take the main stage at 8 p.m Saturday. Fireworks are expected to start at 9:30 p.m.
Events wrap up Sunday at 5 p.m., with the annual parade kicking off at 2:30 p.m.
