Mulberry, Indiana is a very small town but they sure know how to put on one amazing annual community event: MulberryFest!

It is full of events and really gets everyone in this Clinton County town out, about, and involved.

Mulberry  is small: there’s the awesome Roberts’ Southfork Restaurant and Pub (eat onion rings FOR SURE), a scattering of businesses downtown, and that’s about it.

But each summer on the first weekend in June, Mulberry becomes a hub of activity because of one big event: The annual MulberryFest!

To start with, there is a town-wide yard sale. That means that there are many, many yard sales! I would say that I managed to ignore them all…but I would be lying. Kid #2 got a new boat for the bathtub.

Rolling into Mulberry, my husband, Jeremy, was ecstatic to see a car show. There were so many sharp cars–all makes and models. It was incredible. I took a lot of images that I will be sure to share with you later on.

My preference runs toward the 50’s cars with all that shiny chrome. Kid #1 is with me on that. My husband likes the muscle cars–the old mustangs are his thing. Kid #2? He thinks it’s all pretty cool.

MulberryFest  had a fantastic turnout, even with the heat! They had a stage set up in the middle of the downtown. Did you know that Mulberry is the old stomping ground of American Idol finalist Amanda Overmyer? Neat, eh?

We browsed booths, listened to songs on the stage, and had a really good time. Both the kids loved the Cake Pops from the booth by Le Petite Pearl though teething Kid #2 concentrated more on the stick!

Jot down the date in your planner for the next annual MulberryFest! I’m pretty sure the whole town turned out. But who wouldn’t? It’s not very often you see a stage set up in the middle of town.

I do have to say this is the first time I’ve ever seen a festival that offers home delivery of a meal! Does that scream small Indiana town or what? Gotta love that sense of community!
