TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – The crisp air of fall is nearly upon us, but Tippecanoe County’s Wea Creek Orchard is wasting no time in kicking off the season. On Sunday, Sept. 18, it will host the fifth annual Barnyard Bash, a benefit for breast cancer research.
“Our goal is to not only raise awareness of the whole idea of preventing breast cancer as opposed to treating it,” said orchard owner Perry Kirkham.
The benefit is in partnership with the organization, International Breast Cancer and Research.
“We’re trying to raise support to bring training back and forth between the U.S. and 15 other countries,” said Kirkham.
The Barnyard Bash will have everything from free wagon rides, Chinese calligraphy demonstrations, a photographer for family photos and magic tricks by the Purdue Magic Club.
The bash is 2-5 p.m. at the Wea Creek Orchard, 5618 S. 200 East. It costs $6 per person or $15 per family.
Pumpkins are not available at the orchard at the moment, but peaches and apples will be.
