This is it! We came up with a catchier name and a cooler atmosphere. "Same great course, same friendly folks," now with fair food and beer garden (if you are of the appropriate age) at the finish!
What is the weather like in early September in Indiana?
Probably hot and humid, but maybe not. The morning start can help. Sometimes, it will be cool in the morning. Point is, this is Indiana. It could do anything except snow.

What else is included in Tri Kappa's Fair on the Square festival?
Danville Tri Kappa's Fair on the Square is an annual community event that draws large numbers of visitors — from Danville and surrounding towns — to the streets surrounding the Hendricks County Courthouse.
It includes more than 100 booths of shopping, live entertainment, locally grown foods and more and is the centerpiece for what has become a popular community weekend.
Taking advantage of the large crowds, other organizations have piggybacked their events, and together, there are several blocks' worth of activities within walking distance of one another.
Permanent shops, restaurants and the art gallery located along the town square are also open during the event.
