SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- Today marks the 149th birthday for the City of South Bend.

It was 149 years ago today that South Bend was first incorporated.

The occasion was marked in grand fashion by those who are already planning a community wide celebration of next year's looming milestone: the big 150th birthday.

“There could be a 12 month lecture series,” said Aaron Perri, South Bend 150 Chairman. “There could be an essay contest about what South Bend might look like 150 years from now. There could be art projects, you know there are a lot of things, the possibilities are kind of endless right now.”

The celebration of South Bend's 150th birthday will start in January and continue through the end of 2015.
