FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)-If you're looking for something fun to do on Sunday, you can go on a local mini adventure.

The 20th anniversary of the "Be a Tourist In Your Own Town" event will have everyone out and about checking out local places here in Fort Wayne.

There are 16 participating places located throughout the city.

Visit Fort Wayne said this is a great way to remind locals of all the cool things we have here to enjoy, so they don't have to leave the city.

This is the list of places:

African/African-American Historical Museum
Allen County Courthouse
Allen County Public Library
Artlink Contemporary Gallery
Cathedral Museum
Embassy Theatre
Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory
The History Center
Karpeles Manuscript Museum - Fairfield Hall
The Landing
Lincoln Tower
The Old Fort

You can pick up you free passport at any Fort Wayne Kroger or Old National Bank location. Activities will go on from 12pm until 5pm Sunday.
