It’s another Hearthside Supper at Conner Prairie in Fishers. An 1830’s meal in William Conner’s home, by candlelight. With food cooked at the fireplace. In addition to the food, there’s conversation with costumed interpreters – who unwaveringly remain in 1836 – as well as other guests. And there are parlor games. “Guests know they’ll have a great time, but they often don’t realize just how much fun it will be.”
