On Saturday, Sept. 24, the 8th annual UMW Arts & Crafts Show will take place at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CST. Over 100 artists and crafters from Indiana, Illinois and Michigan will be there showcasing their one-of-a-kind handcrafted items. All booths are inside 3 buildings. New this year will be horse-drawn wagon rides that will tour the fairgrounds, and a children’s activity tent for kids 3 years and older where parents can leave their children under close supervision and go off to visit the artisans’ booths. Children will have the opportunity to decorate a pumpkin to take home and participate in other fun activities. There will be a modest charge for the wagon ride and the Children’s Activity Tent. Also featured this year will be a professional face painter who will offer free face painting from 9 am – 1 pm. Lunch will be available for purchase as well as delicious slices of pie.
