CELEBRATE HARVEST DAYS AT NATIONAL LAKESHORE

Great memories are created every year at Indiana Dunes National
Lakeshore’s Duneland Harvest Festival. The free event takes place from
11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., September 18 and 19, at the Chellberg Farm and
Bailly Homestead.
Many visitors return yearly to the festival, remarking on its unique,
non-commercial atmosphere and emphasis on participation. Activities and
food revolve around the fur trade era and 19th-century farm life.
Visitors can try “clogging”, watch woodcarving by hand, or visit with
reenactors about life in “untamed” Indiana.
Remember toys like the “limberjack”, or the challenge of walking on
stilts? Activities for kids include a “Children’s Corner” chock full of
old-fashioned games, and candle dipping. For $1.00, the whole family
can cozy up on a horse-drawn wagon.
            Join us for a different kind of festival. This free event
is co-sponsored by the National Park Service and the Friends of Indiana
Dunes. The Chellberg Farm and Bailly Homestead are on Mineral Springs
Road in Porter, IN. Parking is $6.00 for cars and $20.00 for buses.
For more information call (219) 926-7561 extension 225.
