Make This Memorial Day Weekend Memorable Down on the Farm
Saturday May 25th –Monday May 27th
Veterans or those in active military eat FREE with the purchase of one Thresher’s Dinner! Just print off this page and present it at the restaurant desk upon arrival. Valid Memorial Day weekend, May 25th-27th.
During this weekend of reflection, remembrance, and recreation, we celebrate our freedom that we have been given by those who have made the supreme sacrifice. We can never forget. Our prayers are personal, our reflection is community, and our recreation is celebration of the family.
Only through sacrifices made by patriotic Americans over the centuries can one imagine the freedom to live and worship as one pleases. Amish Acres represents through Amish culture one of the world's best examples of people living with different convictions in peace and harmony.
The Old Barn Restaurant will feature its new Summer Luncheon Menu and famous Threshers Dinner throughout the long weekend. Holiday admission to Amish Acres will give you the background and history of these fascinating people who have lived in the Nappanee area for nearly two centuries. A special showing of three documentaries on Memorial Day feature great insight into the history of the Amish and their quest for religious freedom.
In the German One Room Schoolhouse, school’s out! Though a Flag Coloring Contest will be in session – celebrate our great symbol of hope and freedom while testing your coloring skills. The teeter totter will be in constant motion, horseshoes will clink, the kids can milk Betsy the Cow and harness Henry the Wooden Horse, a pick-up volley ball game and pin the tail on the donkey have no age limit.
The baby lamb and goat are still drinking from a bottle, the calf is getting used to its long legs in the pasture, the turkeys, chickens, and roosters are roaming the orchard basking in the sun.
Of course no visit to Amish Acres is complete without savoring the magic of live musical theatre in The Round Barn Theatre. A full schedule of performances of A Second Helping: The Church Basement Ladies Sequel, the hilarious sequel to the Round Barn’s 2012 smash hit, let you enjoy matinee and evening performances of Indiana's only resident repertory theatre.
*The city of Nappanee is holding their annual Memorial Day parade at 10:30am, starting in the parking lot of the Nappanee Elementary School. The parade will go west on Centennial St. to Main St., then south to Lincoln St, and then ending at Nappanee City Hall. It’ll be followed by a memorial service at 11am, featuring Steve Hunsberger of Wakarusa, whose son was killed while serving in Afghanistan last year.
Flag Coloring Contest – During your Memorial Day weekend tour you will stop in the German One-Room Schoolhouse for a Flag Coloring Contest.
