Arts and crafts festival returns to Nappanee


A Michiana tradition for over 50 years is back.

The 2013 Amish Acres Arts and Crafts Festival kicked off Thursday in Nappanee.  The event features over 300 vendors and attracts thousands of festival-goers.

Clothing, artwork, food and even paddle boat rides are just some of the attractions.  Some of the unique vendors are a glass blower from Germany who specializes in ornaments.

"I love the people here and I love the mood. The mood is's a festival and everybody is happy, everybody is in a good mood and everybody is fun," says Reinhard Herzog.

Another vendors specialty is turning bullets into small figures and decorative items.  The festival continues through Sunday.  Tickets are $7 for adults.  Parking and admission for children 12 and under is free.
