A trip through Elkhart County will mean spotting some elk, at least until October.
On Tuesday, thirty life-size decorated elk sculptures were revealed to kick off “Elkhart On Parade.”
These elk will be on display throughout the county, and artists say they are the perfect symbol for the community.
Elkhart artist Connie Roberts says, “They say that Elkhart got it's name from the St. Joe River and the Elkhart River, and the island part is shaped like an elk's heart. The elks are auctioned off and all the proceeds will go to benefit CAPS. This could be a really neat way for them to fund their program for a long time.”
CAPS is a child abuse prevention agency.
The elk will be on display through the summer, and the auction will take place in November.
