Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
A full slate of activities is on the calendar this weekend for the Riley Creek Festival, held Friday and Saturday, Aug. 10-11, in Pandora.
Events include a Friday evening downtown car show, carnival games, an auction, outdoor movie and lots of food.
Other Friday events include a cornhole tournament and oldies music with a DJ.
On Saturday is a pancake breakast and 10 a.m. parade.
On both evenings and on Sunday afternoon and evening will be the presentation of "Brigadoon." The Riley Creek Players present the musical in the Pandora-Gilboa School auditoria.
Evening performances are at 8 p.m.
