DARKE COUNTY — The Annie Oakley Festival Committee is happy to announce that there will be a free historical bus tour at the festival again this year. This tour will be offered on a comfortable air conditioned touring bus.
The tour is narrated by retired Tri Village school teacher Karen Chronister. The tour leaves from the festival grounds on Saturday, July 30 at 1-3 and 5 p.m. and on Sunday, July 31 at 1 and 3 p.m.
The bus travels to Greenville where many historical sites and facts are shared with the guests. It then travels north to Brock Cemetery where Anne Oakley and Frank Butler are buried. Each bus will carry approximately 55 guests for each tour and last about 90 minutes. Seats on the bus can be reserved at the souvenir booth before each tour.
“When visiting the Annie Oakley Festival this year, be sure to stop by the Souvenir booth to view the many different souvenirs you can purchase to remember your trip to the festival,” said organizers.
