Parke County can brag on their covered bridge festival, but Clay County has many has many great festivals, picnics, and fairs also. Yes the covererd bridge festival may be bigger but that doesn't mean it's better.

I agree with I'M FOR LIFE !!!! Clay County DOES indeed have some of the best festivals and fairs anywhere. Within shorter driving distance for most, and definitely worth attending! A lot of very hard working, dedicated people put together these events. Clay County should be very proud!!!

BRAZIL TIMES: Thank you for NOT fixing the time the parade started! Your article had it WRONG!

I definitely agree with JaniLou and the other poster!
