(MITCHELL) - The Pioneer Village at Spring Mill State Park will come to life with historical re-enactors, crafts, demonstrations and musical entertainment during the 50th annual Tri Kappa Candlelight Tour on Sept. 17. 

The tour is from 4-9 p.m. and is sponsored by service sorority Kappa Kappa Kappa's Gamma Epsilon Chapter of Mitchell. 

Dressed in traditional pioneer clothes, Tri Kappa members and their families and Spring Mill employees will re-create life in the mid-1800s in the houses and buildings of the restored Pioneer Village. 

Visitors should bring a flashlight. Tri Kappa members will sell concession and food items in the carriage house. 

The event is free, although the standard park admission fee of $7 per in-state vehicle and $9 per out-of-state vehicle applies. Buses will shuttle visitors from the Lakeview Activity Center (nature center), campground and inn to the village. 

Tri Kappa is a statewide sorority that supports community and state charities as well as educational and cultural projects. The Mitchell chapter has sponsored the Spring Mill Candlelight Tour since 1967. It has become a popular kick-off event for the week-long Persimmon Festival in Mitchell.
