Travel Tips for Fort Wayne

A Bit of Trivia!

by Ischyros

Not really a tip, but a bit of amusing trivia! If you're in Fort Wayne and stop at the Kohls Department store at NorthCrest Shopping Center (corner of Coliseum Blvd and Clinton), look up at the top right corner on the second floor of the Kohls building. You'll see a white colored area with windows that looks out of place. This is the part of the building that was torn off during the tornado that hit Fort Wayne Memorial weekend of 2001. The weak tornado also flipped several cars in this parking lot before hitting a few residential communities before it was gone. Just an interesting bit of trivia for ya!

Camp in the middle of the city!!

by Fullmoonfever

Johnny Appleseed Campground

Camping in the middle of the city might seem unusual, but this camp ground is nicely located close to Jonny Appleseed Park and his historic grave site and The River Greenway runs right by the camp ground.

In addition, you can walk to see a Fort Wayne Wizards baseball game, go fishing (its only about 200 feet from the Maumee River) or walking/biking on The Greenway.

The link has additional info, along with schedule of fees and location.

The Three Rivers Festival

by Ischyros

The second largest festival in Indiana behind the Indy 500 Festival celebrates its 39th birthday in 2007! Known locally simply as Festival, this annual event draws over 500,000 people to downtown Fort Wayne during its 9 days. In 2007 the fesitval runs July 14-22. The Event Tent will feature 2 yet to be named national acts this year. Don't miss the Crafters Market Saturday and Sunday July 14 and 15 where you can buy all sorts of hand-made crafts! And of course don't miss the opening day parade at 9:30 am on July 14! If you're into art, check out Art in the Park at Freimann Park and Main Street July 14 and 15 where you can buy all sorts of art from clothing to pottery, even sculptures! Along Main Street you can stroll the Chalk Walk and marvel at the things people can draw with chalk. And who can resist Food Alley? This place is actually the most popular part of the festival! Gorge yourself on elephant ears, corn dogs, and cotton candy! The last day of Festival, July 22nd, stay downtown and watch the spectacular fireworks show at 9:30, this year being shot off from the roof of One Summit Square, the tallest building in town! The Three Rivers Festival takes place all around the city, but most of the activitiy is in Headwaters Park and the nearby Freimann Park. Some childrens activities take place at the IPFW campus and carnival rides are located in the Coliseum parking lot. Keep checking back for more info on specific events as time draws closer!

Three Rivers Festival 2004

by Ischyros

The Crafters Market takes place on Main Street and allows people to browse and buy all kinds of crafts from baskets to pottery. It's fun to just stroll through the different little "shops" and just talk to people.

Chalk Walk is an interesting part of Festival. Main Street is blocked off in downtown Fort Wayne for two blocks to allow for these amazing drawings on the street. I have to feel bad though. The two girls pictured here working on their drawing spent 12 hours the day before and 3 more that morning painting it only to have a downpour early that afternoon wash half of their drawing away.

Freimann Square, in the heart of downtown, is lined with booths selling artwork, everything from watercolor to photographs. I love Art in the Park because I'm into art.

Headwaters Park is the hub of the activity at Festival. Here you will find Food Alley, a small midway with carnival rides, concerts, and even helicopter rides! There aren't many carnival rides here due to the small space, but there is a huge midway in the parking lot at Memorial Coliseum.
