Did you know that Orville Redenbacher is from a small town (Brazil) right here in Indiana? Born in 1907, Redenbacher developed his first popcorn hybrids while in 4H in Clay County. He went on to graduate from Purdue and create one of the most well-known popcorn brands.
One of the ways Clay County celebrates Redenbacher is with the annual Popcorn Festival. Held October 3-5 this year, everyone in attendance gets free popcorn and can also take part in the many events that will be happening.
