Evansville's Batman was joined by his sidekick Robin this year as he took his usual perch at the Fall Festival. 

The 98th annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival got off to a great (and safe) start Monday night. As promised, Evansville's Batman reclaimed his usual lookout spot on top of the Gerst Haus from 6-6:30. However, festival goers got a pleasant surprise when Batman's sidekick Robin made a guest appearance.

Not to burst anyone's bubble, but Batman and Robin our actually some of our very own Evansville police officers in costume (don't tell the kids). We love that they do this every year, and hopefully Robin is sticking around too!

Basically, to sum it up:

Thanks, Batman and Robin, for keeping us safe!
