    Ikebana and Bonsai Exhibits

    Time:
    1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Location:
    Centennial Barn

    Celebrate two forms of Japanese artistry at Fort Hunter this weekend.  The Harrisburg Chapter of Ikebana International will hold their annual Ikebana exhibition for two days in Fort Hunter’s Centennial Barn and the Susquehanna Bonsai Club will exhibit several specimens of bonsai in the 1810 Stable. The shows will be open Saturday from 1 – 5 pm and Sunday, during Garden Faire, from 10 am – 4 pm. Admission is free.

    Ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Ikebana often emphasizes areas other than the flower of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line and form through minimalism.   Bonsai is an art form of miniature trees grown in containers.  The purpose of bonsai is primarily contemplation (for the viewer) and the pleasant exercise of effort and ingenuity (for the grower.)

    Members of Ikebana will present flower arrangements in the different styles of Ikebana and will be judged on the arrangements adherence to style specifications.  A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 11 am on Saturday.

    Ikebana International is a non-profit cultural organization dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.   Ikebana International does not teach any singe style of Ikebana; rather, it encompasses many different schools.  The Harrisburg chapter of Ikebana International has been in existence for 56 years.

    The Susquehanna Bonsai Club, started in 1980, will be displaying their trees and will be on hand to answer any questions about the art of bonsai. They will also be demonstrating the techniques used to create these living works of art throughout the weekend. Members will also be available on Saturday to give advice on bonsai trees that are brought in by visitors.

    Centennial Barn

    For many years, children of all ages have delighted in seeing passenger trains, freight trains and scenes reminiscent of Pennsylvania attractions and countryside at this annual event. The Keystone Model Railroad Historical Society brings a magical wonderland of HO gauge trains on an 18X24 layout that may be viewed from all sides.  Check it out from every angle.  There is something for everyone as lights flash, burning buildings glow, sirens sound, cattle moo and Ferris wheels turn. Old and new trains will be displayed each week and for the annual visitor, exciting new additions are made each year. Thanks to the Friends of Fort Hunter for underwriting this popular attraction.  Saturdays and Sundays only, November 25 through December 23.  Free
