FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Saturday marked Day Two of Fort Wayne’s Spring Forward Fest, and a sunny afternoon helped bring Hoosiers out to explore.
Spring Forward Fest celebrates Daylight Saving Time and the upcoming arrival of the spring season in Fort Wayne.
A waterfall flows down inside the Botanical Conservatory in Downtown Fort Wayne.
The Embassy Theater is teaming up with several downtown locations to set up lights and events to encourage people to explore the city.
Multiple Fort Wayne residents say the timing couldn’t be better as COVID-19 restrictions loosen around the country.
“Oh, it’s feeling great. I mean winter’s hard enough, especially when you’re restricted on what kind of places you can go inside,” said Larry LaCross, who has lived in Fort Wayne for over 30 years.
Bobby and Crystal Bonus have lived in Fort Wayne for just over a month.
They're excited to finally get the chance to enjoy the city with the sun shining.
“It’s awesome," Bobby said. "It’s nice to be able to stretch your legs and be around people..."
"Instead of closed in your houses," Crystal added.
Clocks spring forward Sunday at 2 a.m. in Indiana, but the festival will continue through Sunday evening.
