Yes that's right the name Valparaiso translates to Vale Of Paradise !
But For Popcorn Lovers around the country....VALPARAISO, IN was once Home Sweet Home of the late famous Orville Redenbacher and
the town's population will grow with visitors from
all over who will be in town to attend the annual
POPCORN FESTIVAL !!!
Roads around the town square will be filled with arts, & crafts booths, food, music,
& lots of people not to
mention a PARADE and Races also!
The hand painted artistic benches on every corner will be resting spots for those with tired feet
or those who just got stung by the bumble bees that also attend the fest every year!
Valparaiso makes ice cream also-Valpo Velvet Ice Cream Shop at
55 W. Monroe St. (pictured below) is a must stop by & have - our favorite is
Cappuccino-Chocolate Chip- Frozen Yogurt!
Besides the famed popcorn fest, terrific ice cream,
and many excellent dining establishments, (some of which
offer outdoor seating in season along the main
street named Linclonway), the City of Valparaiso is also
know for its renouned University !
