Wiggles: Capture the Midway in Danville
Danville, Indiana is the place to find some of your favorite country traditions. The countryside around this Indianapolis satellite is covered in farmland, and there are many Danville historic sites within the town’s city limits that show off a rich tradition of family values, hard work, and simple living. In many ways, Danville is the perfect down home, rural community. Wiggles, a relatively new restaurant in downtown Danville, serves up memories of one of the most down home things there is: a county fair.
Yes, owners Clint and Jennifer Riggles have equipped this Danville restaurant with menu that will win over even the most hardened veteran of the Indiana State Fairgrounds: deep fried Snickers, funnel cakes, elephant ears, cotton candy, sno-cones; it’s a veritable feast of sugary guilty pleasures that will remind you of the sawdust, smells, and sights of the Indiana State Fair or any other brightly lit midway you’ve ever been on. Wiggles is the perfect compliment to a day spent wandering around all the Danville businesses that dot the courthouse square, because there’s no more satisfying end to a day of sightseeing than settling down to a freshly fried elephant ear. You might even be able to convince yourself it’s healthy, because all fried foods at Wiggles are cooked in non-trans fat oil.
Wiggles is also an excellent place to host Danville events. Danville children love to have birthday parties at this restaurant, and if you can ride out the sugar high they’re bound to get from all the fried goodies, you’ll probably get some good pictures of your kid with powdered sugar all over his of her face. The interior of the store is a fun, brightly colored space, and the Riggles sell homemade candies and novelty gifts.
So if you ever want to recapture the magic of a county fair (minus the barnyard smells and the oppressive summer heat), head on out to Wiggles in downtown Danville. Danville is only about twenty miles away from downtown Indianapolis, so even if you live in the heart of the Circle City, you don’t have far to go to immerse yourself in the midway.
