More security is becoming more common at the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival.
Even though crime is low and there are rarely problems, some have hired private security to supplement local law enforcement which can be stretched thin over the week long event.
More than two million people will go through ParkeCounty during the run of the festival.
Added security will be working day and night and in the event of problems, added help will be a little closer.
Due to heavy traffic, response times can be greatly increased during the festival.
The festival runs through Sunday.
