Starry Night Festival brings night sky down to earth


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue Christian Campus House has found a way to bring the night sky to the streets of Purdue University.

The 14th annual Starry Night Festival was held on Purdue’s campus Saturday night.

Festivalgoers got the chance to listen to live music, look at various different vendors and eat delicious food.

The street festival helps bring community members together and show the public the development work of the Habitat for Humanity.

Organizers said it takes all hands on deck to put on the event.

“I grab a ladder, I climb up in the middle of this intersection, and I can see all the way down Northwestern/South Street,” event director Rob Schrumpf said. “I get a sense of the magnitude of this crowd, and that’s my favorite part.”

Starry Night was free to the public and lasted until midnight.
