Episode #850 - May 22nd, 2015
On tonight's show, South Bend's 150th Birthday Celebration weekend is here and Aaron Perri gives us a preview. What if you could experience a virtual reality tour of South Bend from the early days of the city or take a look at a model of the downtown area as it was in the 1920s? One of the goals that the city of South Bend is striving for is to become a ‘zero waste' city. One of the highlights of the big SB 150 Birthday Celebration is the debut of the South Bend River Lights.
