Be a tourist in your own backyard on Friday, April 29, through Sunday, May 1, during the third annual “Passport to Fun: Explore Noble!”
Get your passport stamped at any of the 15 participating sites during the kick-off open house for the 2016 tourism season. Many attractions are offering free or reduced-admission events. Visitors who stop in at three or more sites during “Passport to Fun” may enter their passport in a drawing for a gift basket filled with items from our Noble County attractions.
Participating sites are Annie Oakley Perfumery, The Lavender Lane, Stone’s Trace Historic Site, Chain O’Lakes State Park, Maple Acres, Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Fox Trail Farm, Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site, Testimonies Bakery & Cafe, Brick Ark Inn, Mid-America Windmill Museum, Orchard Hill Farms, Lonidaw Nature Preserve, and Sundaes on Sylvan Ice Cream Shoppe.
The Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau is putting out the welcome mat for visitors at its new home in the Sower Farmhouse, 8983 County Road 350 E., Rome City, just west of the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site. Stop in and get your passport stamped, enjoy light refreshments, tour the restoration-in-progress 1880s farmhouse, and pick up the 2016 Noble County Visitors Guide. Eligible passports for the basket drawing may also be dropped off at the Sower Farmhouse.
See you this weekend!Read More »
