Come party with the residents of Chandler as they celebrate the place they call home.

Nestled between Evansville and Boonville on Highway 62, Chandler began as a community called "Lee" as early settlers began to, well, settle in way back in 1847. Less than 30 years later, after the construction of the Southern Railway through town in 1873, the name was changed to Chandler after the construction foreman, O.E. Chandler, who later would become Vice President of town.

Saturday's Celebration Day will feature a laundry list of activities for visitors of all ages including:
