FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne venues and attractions were filled with people Sunday for the annual Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown event.

More than 20 locations were open for people to tour including the Old Fort, the Embassy Theatre, the Botanical Conservatory, and Science Central.

“It’s so exciting to see all our visitors here underneath our multi-colored smoke stacks. We’ve made a number of renovations this year, added a number of new exhibits so to be able to invite the public in and remove that financial component and have them enjoy all of the improvements to Science Central. It’s very heartening for everybody here to see,” said Steve Clark, Science Central’s marketing manager.

You can already mark for calendar for next year. Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown 2023 is set for Sunday, Sept. 10, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
