Amish Religious Holiday – Ascension Day

This Thursday, May 14, the Amish observe a religious holiday, Ascension Day.  Ascension Day is recognized 40 days after Easter and is the day that Jesus Christ ascended into heaven.  It marks the end of the Easter season.  Amish always take this day off from work, therefore, they do not do business on Ascension Day and no tours will be given.  Everyone will be back to work on Friday, including Bluffscape Amish Tours.

One of the many Amish-made crafts you will find on a Bluffscape Amish Tour are the colorful rugs pictured above.  They are made of a knit/polyester material and come in a variety of colors and designs.  The Amish ladies sew the rugs using a treadle sewing machine. One of my favorite rugs I have seen in their shops is in the design of a sunflower.  The rugs look almost too pretty to step on!

Autumn Bluffscape Amish Tours in Lanesboro

September and October are one of the premiere times to ride along on a Bluffscape Amish Tour in Lanesboro.  As autumn arrives the Amish of Southeast Minnesota are harvesting their crops of corn and picking late summer produce out of their gardens.  You may see shocks of corn drying in the fields while your Bluffscape tour guide drives you along country roads to visit the Amish people while narrating about their simple lifestyle.  While out on a Bluffscape Amish Tour, you may want to purchase buttery, sweet cashew crunch made by the Amish.
Bluffscape Amish Tours depart Lanesboro daily at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. from the Feed Mill building and Stone Mill Hotel & Suites.  Please call now to reserve your seat with Bluffscape at 507.467.3070 or learn more about our quality Bluffscape Amish Tours at www.bluffscape.com.
