This festival begins in Rockville around the court house in the center of town. It has been there since 1957. It always begins the 2nd friday in october. There are 5 driving routes which you take you through different towns to see the covered bridges. Some of the towns like Bridgeton set up yard sales as you drive through. The town of Rockville has so many vendors around the court house inside huge tents you walk through. Stores stay open in town and have special deals also. There are lots of food vendors in the lawn area with great food and tables to sit and eat. Plan a weekend here in order to drive the different routes and stop for pictures and shopping. Each route is about 30 miles but takes awhile to drive because your on country roads. Find a place to stay months or even a year in advance. The places fill up fast because of this festival. The starting point to this is ohio street in Rockville Indiana and really worth the trip. We took our 4 year old and he loved it, seeing the bridges and walking across them. Stopping to look at the sites along the way. Rockville has my vote, this is the 4th time we've done this trip.
