LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Rain stopped the Hanna Fest from happening last month, but Saturday those who showed up for the rescheduled event enjoyed perfect weather.

The Hanna Community Center hosted its annual event at its location on North 18th Street. It was open to the public with a small cost for food and some games.

While guest enjoyed the festivities, local bands played for them.

Executive director Heather Maddox said all the money raised goes to the Hanna Center’s youth and senior programs.

“First of all, it’s a tradition,” said Maddox describing Hanna Fest. “It’s been going on for many, many years. And it’s a way for us to raise a little bit of money, but it’s also more kind of just bringing the community together and having a good time.”

Maddox says the Hanna Center provides a home away from home for many.
