We published hundreds of galleries on ValpoLife this past year. Football games, 5ks, and parades all deserved a gallery this past year! With so many notable events in Northwest Indiana, it’s no wonder we had so many stories to choose from!
Without further ado (and in no particular order), here are the Top 10 galleries from ValpoLife in 2017!
