Did you new that we have one of the largest zip lines in the Midwest right by us?
White River Zip Lines opened a $1 million course just a couple of weeks ago in South Madison County and features eight zip line runs over 100 acres of Indiana woodlands. The course boasts high speeds and includes ten towers within the oak and maple trees.

School’s out for summer! And, the June Jamboree is almost here!

This annual Pendleton tradition that goes hand-in-hand with the end of the school year! Now that the kids are out of school, it’s time to celebrate with the jamboree.
Bring your families to Falls Park for the June Jamboree and enjoy the “famous” Kiwanis K-Burgers, funnel cakes, corn on the cob, cotton candy and all the well-known carnival food favorites. The park will be lined with rides for the kids, the ferris wheel, carousel, carnival games and other attractions. The vender tent will also be in the middle of the park to meet and talk with local businesses and service providers.
Tickets can be purchased in advance from a Lions Club member or at Marsh. The rides will all be one ticket. There is no admission charge to come out to the Jamboree…so load up the car and come visit this annual event to kickstart your summer!
