TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Banks of the Wabash Festival returns to Fairbanks Park this week.

The community event kicks off Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. with one ticket a ride night and other nights will feature different deals.

The festival includes lots of Luehrs’ Ideal Rides, games, food, and fun for the whole family.

“When you come out to a festival of this nature, you’re coming out for the community. You get to see people you haven’t seen in years and you get to meet up with people that you haven’t ever met and make new friends,” said Andy Schoendienst, Owner & President of Luehrs’ Ideal Rides.

The festival will run from Thursday, May 25, through June 3.
