Festival celebrates left-handers


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Did you know that August 13 is International Lefthanders Day? Fort Wayne’s Leftfest on Wednesday aims to celebrate lefthanders and raise awareness for the challenges they face.

The 2014 event is the second annual Leftfest. While it’s put on in honor of International Lefthanders’ Day, it is open to anyone – regardless of dominant hand!

In addition to a talent show, trivia contest, songs and more, parents can also learn different ways to help accommodate left-handed children.

The event kicks off at 1 p.m. on Wednesday at 4005 South Wayne Ave. and will run until 8 p.m. Food will be available from the chefs of the Friendly Fox and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., there will be various food trucks at the Redeemer Lutheran Church at 202 W Rudisill Blvd.
