WARSAW — Getting Back To Our Roots is the focus for the April 1 First Friday event, as part of the Decades of Change theme. The evening will center around the years from 1800 to 1900, from 5-9 p.m. downtown Warsaw.
The Circuit, a praise team band from Clunette United Methodist Church, will provide old time religion music and secular music for the enjoyment of those venturing downtown. The band will set up on the northwest corner of Center and Buffalo street.
Venture among the tents and booths to step back into time when rope was handmade and metal and iron items were forged by tradesmen. Watch a craftsman make rope and visit the blacksmith shop to see the skills used.
Have hopes and dreams? New Life Christian Church will host a wish wall where those attending First Friday can write their wishes on a slip of paper and leave them at the wall.
Of course there will be food and other vendors lining Center and Buffalo streets. Other events are still being formulated and confirmed. Don’t be surprise if you see an old fashioned pig race.
Plans are also in the works to have a display of vintage vehicles made in Warsaw. This includes an Orn Sleigh, manufactured at the carriage and sleigh shop, located where the justice building now stands.
In case you missed the opportunity in March, The Kosciusko T-shirts — Polish Princess and Made In Kosciusko County With Polish Parts will be available to purchase.
Bring the family, your neighbors and meet friends in downtown Warsaw for an evening of nostalgia and fun.
