Statewide celebrations around Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay

A celebration marking the start of the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay is set for the small town that was the state’s first capital. Organizers say the torch will be lit during Friday’s ceremony on the grounds of the original state capital building in the southern Indiana town of Corydon (KOHR’-eh-duhn). The relay is set to travel through Indiana’s 92 counties and 260 cities and towns before ending Oct. 15 at the Statehouse in Indianapolis.
