WARSAW, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Habitat for Humanity of Kosciusko County will unveil "Rain" on Kosciusko's 2013 rain barrels at the Milford Fest on Saturday.

The Fest begins at 10am and lasts until 9pm with vendors, food, rides, community spirit and rain barrels! More than a dozen of the
rain barrels will be unveiled at the Fest. The barrels will make their official First Friday debut around Downtown Warsaw on June 7th and will be passive participants in the Northern Indiana Lakes Festival that weekend, remaining on display in Warsaw throughout June and July.

The public is invited to vote on their favorite barrel via donation, with the highest grossing barrel being named People's Choice, at the official barrel page on the Habitat Kosciusko website:

Individuals can also bid on the barrel of their choice via online silent auction. Voting and bidding begin Saturday, May 25th at 10am as the barrels are unveiled.

Awards will be given for Best Creation, Best Color Scheme, Most Imaginative Use, Best Artist, Most Outside the Barrel, Most Bizarre and more. People's Choice will be decided by the barrel earning the most votes via donation while Best in Show will be decided by the barrel receiving the highest auction amount. Rain barrels are very similar to the role that Habitat plays in the community, the barrels are simple, decent, affordable, efficient and utilize resources wisely. Habitat provides simple, decent, affordable
and efficient housing utilizing the volunteer resources within the community.
