JASPER, Ind. (WFIE) - Strassenfest in Jasper kicks off on Thursday.

The event is moving to a different location this year.

The festival usually takes place on the courthouse square, but it’s moving to the Fourth Street area.

You’ll still be able to enjoy your favorite food booths and rides. You can even buy a ticket for the half-pot.

This year, they’re also adding a traditional glockenspiel to be a focal point of the festival.

“It’s beautiful, handcrafted, hand carved,” said festival organizer Kelsey Merkel. “We’re going to have that highlighted right in the center of the fest, hope people come out and take photos with it and we’re going to have live performances. . .”

The festival also has a half-pot going on this year.

There will be a parade on Sunday.
