Holy Cross Hosts Michiana Orchid Society Fall Show

The annual Michiana Orchid Society fall show will be held at Holy Cross College on Saturday and Sunday, October 31-November 1, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern / 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Central Time each day. This is the weekend of the time change so the times are Daylight Time on Saturday and Standard Time on Sunday.

There will be beautiful displays of exotic orchids allowing many photo opportunities. Ribbon judging of the exhibits and individual plants will commence early on Saturday morning, followed by official American Orchid Society judging. Vendors from the midwest will have orchid plants and supplies for sale. There will be cultural workshops both days on various orchid topics, including how to make a rain-barrel for collecting your own pure rainwater, and even children's orchid crafts. Admission is free.

Holy Cross College is on State Road 933 North (aka 31/33, North Michigan, Dixieway Highway, etc.), just south of Saint Mary's College and across from WNDU and the University of Notre Dame, at exit 77 of the Indiana Toll Road.
