AUDIO: Aurora Mayor Talks Upcoming Events, Pool Fundraising

The City of Aurora will host a 9/11 event to honor first responders, plus Farmers Fair is right around the corner.

(Aurora, Ind.) - Two big events are upcoming in downtown Aurora. 

Mayor Mark Drury stopped by the Eagle's Nest on Wednesday morning to preview the upcoming Aurora Farmers Fair, and a special 9/11 event that will honor first responders. 

Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

To honor first responders, the Aurora Churches Association will host a program similar to the Hard Hat Hangout, but with a focus on first responders. 

Local law enforcement, fire, EMS, water rescue, and the Army National Guard will be among the agencies on hand this Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Aurora Lions Club parking lot. 

Goodie bags and t-shirts will be provided to the first 50 kids in attendance. 


The 112th Aurora Farmers Fair takes place September 29 and 30 and October 1 and 2. 

One of Indiana's oldest street festivals, the Aurora Farmers Fair will feature games, rides, food, live music, parade, and more. 

"The Farmers Fair is more than just a street parade," said Drury. "To me, every year its kind of a family reunion, get together. Classmates come back together, families come back together, people come in from far and wide."

In addition, Mayor Drury said fundraising for the proposed community pool has been going well. From cookoffs to yard sales, the City is aiming to raise $1 million to help build a "dream pool." 

The money from fundraising efforts will be added to the $2.5 million the City has already financed for the pool project.
