TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Campfires were put out and campsites were torn down as a weekendlong Tippecanoe County tradition wrapped up.

The 49th Feast of the Hunters’ Moon ended Sunday at Fort Ouiatenon.

The event featured a variety of activities such as craft booths, food and re-enactments.

The smell of wood burning in the air and rifles going off in the distance gave participants an authentic feel of the past.

The event’s executive director, Michael Hadley, said this year was his first feast. He was thrilled by the event’s outcome.

“I’ve just been blown away by the sheer number of booths, musicians, artisans,” Hadley said. “And the people are just the friendliest people you can hope to meet.”

Proceeds from the event will go toward educational programs and operational costs for the Tippecanoe County Historical Association.
