To celebrate Dubois County’s 200th birthday, the City of Huntingburg hosted a Bicentennial Birthday Block Party on Thursday evening. Sandy Kays of Huntingburg celebrated successfully removing a block from the Jenga tower while playing against Kate Schwenk of Jasper. “I could play this all night,” Kays said. 


Jayne Dodd of Huntingburg created the cake for the county and the Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce provided free cupcakes for anyone attending the block party.
