Now that Spring is here, Lanesboro is preparing for visitors. Many of the restaurants and retail shops that were closed for the winter are now open and ready to greet their customers. On Saturday, April 10th at 10 a.m. ladies can take in a fashion show hosted by Cheryl’s Apparel at the Commonweal Theater. Many retailers will be offering specials throughout the day. If you are looking for an afternoon activity, stop by Bluffscape Amish Tours located at 102 E. Beacon St. at Cheryl’s Apparel, and come along on an Amish tour at 1:30 p.m. With the early spring weather, we may see Amish working in the fields with the horse-drawn farm equipment getting ready for planting. No tours went out on Good Friday, as this is a religious holiday for the Amish. The Amish fast in the morning in observance of Good Friday and have a big meal at noon.
Bluffscape Amish Tours are operating Monday – Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and at 1:30 p.m. until October. The Amish farmers market opens this weekend, so I’m excited to see the ladies that work the market and eating their wonderful cookies, bars, granola, and breads. I think I’ll have to spend more time on the treadmill, if I’ll be stopping at the market twice a day on the tours! Happy Spring!
