Clifty Falls State Park celebrating 100th anniversary June 27


Staff Reports

Clifty Falls State Park in Madison will celebrate its 100th birthday June 27 with a party welcoming people from all over Indiana and elsewhere.

The site became Indiana’s third state park in 1920, and the community has planned a significant activity day and bash.

The all-day event, costing $7 for in-state vehicles and $9 for visitors with out-of-state license plates, will feature storytelling and history programs, music and food.

Opening with a presentation about park history at 10 a.m. in the Overlook Room of the Clifty Inn, past employees will follow on the agenda at 11 a.m. by telling stories about the park and will answer questions from visitors.

The inn will serve a one-piece chicken meal for sale between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with cake and ice cream for dessert for free in the Overlook Room starting at 1 p.m.

Wes and Donna Griffin will perform on dulcimer, concertina, melodeon, ukulele and guitar from 1 to 3 p.m. Also in the afternoon, there will be hay rides around the park leaving on the hour. A centennial bicycle parade will take place through the campground at 7 p.m.
