Hi I was trying to get in touch with someone who could give me some clarification on the mask policy that you guys would have for the farerie gardens. I know for the state of Indiana it’s indoors and outdoors when social distancing is not possible and with the event being outside and pretty spread out I was wondering if you guys are requiring people to wear masks attend that event or because it’s outside and we’re able to social distance that we do not have to wear them. Thank you
Thank you SO much for having this event every year. This is our 5th year. My granddaughter always says this is her favorite day of the year. 🧚‍♀️
There wasn't a place to post on the event, but we found the final jar!
The redbuds peeking through the green budding trees throughout the Minnetrista campus are lovely! #HoosierBeauty
