For the second year a stretch of Waterfall Drive in Elkhart is covered with a flower carpet made of over 7,100 potted mums. The flower carpet is free to view and there is a viewing ramp at the north end that allows for a better view. The mums will be sold to benefit youth education programs sponsored by Premier Arts.

For the first time a second carpet is on display in Nappanee.
