Preparations have been winding up as the big day for Babe of Wabash County approaches.

On Tuesday, executive director Katey Till said they were finally planning on opening their doors to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 20 for a community open house, and again from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 7 for May’s First Friday. Till said Babe of Wabash County originally planned to open its doors in January with a tentative grand opening set for First Friday on Feb. 5, but that date was ultimately moved back to give them time to prepare.
