Pulaski County’s Winter Wonderland is this Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET in the downtown area.

Among the many deals the downtown merchants will have, along with cookies and cider and caroling at the courthouse, the Iris-Elm Christmas Arrangements Show will be in the Historic Railroad Freight Depot on West Main Street in Winamac. The elegantly decorated arrangements will be out for viewing throughout the day at no charge for you to enjoy. The show will also feature a bake sale/gift bazaar table.

The theme will be “1862 Christmas” and the garden club members will assemble holiday arrangements that follow the mid-19th Century era.

The Iris-Elm Garden Club has been participating in this holiday feature since 1958. It is a chance for the members to show off their abilities and inspire others to create unique holiday arrangements for display in their own homes.

The garden club itself will be celebrating its 83rd anniversary this year and is said to be one of the oldest garden clubs in the state.
