Mums the word in Elkhart and Nappanee


Here's something that could make anyone's day better: a trip to see the Fall Flower Carpets.
We have two in our area right now.  One is in downtown Elkhart. The other is in Nappanee.    They each take up an entire city block.    Combined, the are made of more than 14,000 mums.

Sonya Nash, the Project Manager says, "It's beautiful, It's breathtaking and we're celebrating the arts and what better way here in the fall than to do it with the Queen of the Flowers of Fall, which is the mum and showcasing art and color, beauty and telling the stories of each community."

Elkhart's flower carpet celebrates the Ruthmere Mansion.    Nappanee pays tribute to the city's woodworking heritage.
