Decatur's long-awaited Sculpture Tour Festival, greatly expanded from last year's first such event, will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday.
A large turnout is likely for the event which will see the unveiling of 19 new sculptures. The tour is expected to take 60 to 90 minutes.
Also Saturday, food vendors will be set up on Madison St., between Second and Third streets, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In addition to the new sculptures — 13 outdoor sculptures and six indoor pieces created by artists from Indiana, Ohio, Missouri and Minnesota — the Peace Monument — 100 years old this year — on the courthouse square, the former library (and now superior court) building, and some sculptures at St. Marys Catholic Church will be incorporated into the tour.
