Vacation time is often described as an attempt to break out of the daily grind – well, what if I told you that you could accomplish that very thing by visiting a daily grind? Bonneyville Mill, a historic grist mill in Bristol, IN that still grinds corn, wheat, rye and buckwheat the old-fashioned way: slowly and methodically with massive grist stones.
Bonneyville Mill, in the center of beautiful, Bonneyville Mill County Park, is a functioning grist mill and fascinating window to the past that you can visit and tour. It’s historic facilities are open to visitors May through October, while the expansive park it is in is open year-round!
The 51st Annual Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival runs from August 1-4, 2013 in Nappanee, Indiana.
An art competition, live entertainment and an Indiana Amish Country setting combine to form the annual Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival.
This event is ideal for art lovers wanting to combine their appreciation for arts and crafts with exploration of the Indiana Amish Country. The outdoor festival and market takes place at the Amish Acres farm’s pond.
Not content to rest on the artistic laurels of last year’s golden anniversary, the theme of the 2013 Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival is “Proud as a Peacock’s Plumage: The Colorful World of Art.” The festival draws its inspiration for the theme from the “It’s A-Peelin’ Apple Art,” an outdoor exhibit created by local artists and featuring a four foot tall apple sculpture of a peacock in full plumage. This Amish Acres historic Kuhn’s Apple Cider Mill, which is ranked in the Top 10 Cider Mills in America.
Attendance of this event is expected to be sky high once again, so it is recommended you reserve your lodging right away. Scottish Bed & Breakfast is just down the road a few miles from the festival and currently has rooms available through the festival weekend.
