Elkhart County proudly will host the Indiana Bicentennial Torch on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 beginning at 9 a.m. in Middlebury, traveling on the Heritage Trail thru Elkhart, Goshen, Wakarusa and Nappanee. The torch will be primarily transported by people, passing the flame from torch bearer to torch bearer. The relay will also employ other modes of conveyance that are symbolic of the history and heritage of Indiana, including watercraft, farm equipment, a racecar, horse and wagon, antique automobile, and others.
Festivities will vary from town to town, as communities celebrate the torch in their own special way. A specialized Mobile Visitors Center will be created to accompany the torch on its journey.
