GREENFIELD — Thousands crowded the corner of State and Main streets over the weekend for the 2016 Riley Festival, which enjoyed warm weather and rain-free skies — a welcome change from last year’s event, which closed up early because of inclement weather.

Festival-goers enjoyed live entertainment, a parade and countless attractions both at the Riley Boyhood Home and Museum and throughout downtown Greenfield over the weekend.

The annual event celebrates Hoosier poet James Whitcomb Riley, who grew up in Greenfield just a block from where the festival sets up hundreds of vendor booths each October.
