Persimmon pudding is a longstanding southern Indiana tradition – after all, this is the 68th Annual Persimmon Festival! The main event of the festival is always the persimmon pudding recipe contest. Last year’s winner used buttermilk, 1/2 and 1/2, butter, eggs, cinnamon and a few other important ingredients. In fact, one past winner appeared on NBC’s Today show to bake pudding! Other highlights include candlelight tour through Springmill State Park’s historic village and the Grand Parade, one of Indiana’s largest, and a variety of musical acts. This year's Grand Marshal will be Mitchell business owners, thanking them for all they do for the community.
