In late summer and early fall of 2016, the Indiana Office of Tourism Development celebrated our stateâ€™s 200th anniversary with a torch relay. Â This Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay connected all 92 counties of our state by a route that was some 3,200 miles long. Â More than 2,200 Hoosiers carried the torch, passing the flame from person to person.
As Hoosiers look to the future of Indiana, we hope the Torch Relay serves as a reminder that Indianaâ€™s legacy is everlasting when all of us â€“neighborhoods, communities and generationsâ€”work together toward a brighter future.
Students at Ball State University produced a 37-minute documentary, Everlasting Light: The Story of Indianaâ€™s Bicentennial Torch Relay. The film serves to memorialize and preserve the Torch Relayâ€™s legacy for generations to come.
