If you are looking for a nice getaway this Saturday, might we suggest an event happening in the small town of Roanoke In, located a short 15 minutes’ drive south west of the Fort. The Elky’s will cap off an evening of art from around the area by such greats as: Daniel Dienelt, Joel Janiszyn and Paul Demaree. There  will be free beer and Bravas will be selling their own delicious, artistic creations. The Party starts at 6pm with the Elky Summers hitting the stage around 8. Beat the city heat with a drive in the county!

The Elky Summers’ triumphant return to the stage! June 1st!
