Roxy Music Black Friday Special plus Johnny V Friday 11/28 11a-1p
The Turkey Walk and Native American Heritage Celebration will be I.F.G.
The Turkey Walk and Native American Heritage Celebration will be celebrated again this year at International Friendship Gardens. Donations of cat/dog food will be gathered for donation to local pet shelters. The gates open at 10AM Thanksgiving morning and will close at 4PM. You will meet ‘Pilgrims’, Indians, and Mr. Turkey at different times during the day. Pets on a leash are also welcome.
A live turkey and woods full of hidden (paper) turkeys invite young guests to join in the hunt and win prizes. Youngsters are invited to walk the trails and count the turkeys they see. All numbers are correct and there is a little prize at the end of the trail. Young and old can enjoy the Gardens and trails. Hot drinks, snacks, plants and Gardens souvenirs will be on sale. Volunteers will be on hand to greet folks, show off the gardens, and to tell them about all the things that make the gardens such a special place such as the wildness of the surrounding woods and the beauty of the cultivated areas.
There will be Native American displays and open fire cooking in the Native American Garden to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. A special treat this year will be a large pumpkin stuffed with goodies cooked over an open fire. Tasty indeed!
International Friendship Gardens was established in 1936 as a public garden and has been open ever since. It is located at 2055 U.S. Highway 12, on the eastern edge of Michigan City. It features nationality themed gardens, two and a half miles of woodland trails, a canopied wedding area and other rental spaces. IFG has had a great 2014 with membership growing, especially family memberships. Many join because of the all-season, all-hours access provided for members. Mother Nature always keeps it beautiful at the Gardens, regardless of the season. Call 219-878-9885 for more information.
