Orchid Show at Holy Cross College


The Michiana Orchid Society will host its annual fall orchid show and sale on October 26-27, 2013, at Holy Cross College.  Guests will be entranced by beautiful exhibits of exotic orchids in tropical settings set up by orchid societies from Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan.  There will be ribbon judging on Saturday, as well as American Orchid Society national judging by judges from the Midwest region.  Orchid vendors from Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana will offer a large selection of blooming orchid plants and supplies to local orchid hobbyists.   


Free workshops and presentations will be available at 1:00 and 2:00 EDT both Saturday and Sunday, with subjects including general orchid culture, repotting, the new LED lights and making terrariums.  Michiana Orchid Society members will be present to answer orchid questions.  There will be a free raffle for orchid plants---participants need not be present to win---plants may be delivered.  Photographers will find wonderful opportunities to capture lovely and unusual flowers in bloom.  Children will appreciate the kids' activity area, featuring planting and coloring with an orchid theme. 


The orchid show is open to the public from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM EDT both Saturday and Sunday; admission and parking are free.  Holy Cross College is located just south of Indiana Toll Road Exit 77, next to Saint Mary's College and across the street from the University of Notre Dame on State Road 933 North (also known as Indiana 31, Michigan Street, and Dixieway South).  For more information on the orchid show and the Michiana Orchid Society, please contact Sandy Ohlund at sohlund@csinet.net or phone 219.778.4457.
