CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana Bicentennial Torch continued its journey through the Hoosier state Thursday.

During the evening hours, the torch was carried along the Wabash and Erie Canal in Delphi.

Carroll County is the 72nd of 92 counties to get the torch.

Spectators got the chance to look back on some history with the Indiana Bicentennial Experience trailer.  Music was provided by area school choirs and bands.

Delphi Mayor Shane Evans said having the torch arrive on the canal boat was the perfect choice for the city and the turnout was great.

“It’s a great way to showcase our city and show the improvements that we’ve made,” Evans said. “It also celebrates the great volunteers that we have here.”

The Indiana Bicentennial Torch stopped in Clinton County earlier Thursday.

It will be in White, Cass, Pulaski and Starke counties on Friday.
