Smiley Face Water Tower

The entire town was awesome. Small, and there was a festival going on right next to the tower. On the back of the water tower is the town name -- great welcome, Ashley, Indiana.

Sounds like you happened onto the Ashley-Hudson Festival, a big yearly community event. Nice to see that they arranged a pair of Army howitzers at the base of the Smiley Face Water Tower.

Smiley Face Water Tower

The town water tower is painted bright yellow and has a smiley face overlooking Interstate 69.
