Two special activities going on this weekend in Amana. If you enjoy bicycling through the countryside - then come and join the BRIC ride. The ride begins at the Millstream Brau Haus and is about 28 miles as you ride to Marengo and back. No registration necessary just check in and pick up a 'passport'. Then along your ride you can stop as several points and get your passport stamped. When you're done you turn in your passport to enter for a chance to win a $100 Amana Colonies gift certificate. If you would rather get your exercise by walking... head to the Market Barn in Amana (just across the street from the Visitor's Center) and stroll through the many artist booths. You will be able to find many different handmade items. In the past I have seen and purchased - things such as jewelry, paintings, photographs suitable for framing, Christmas decorations made from many different kinds of things, handmade baskets, decorations made from tin, as well as food to munch on while you walk around and music to enjoy. This is a free event and you will see the work of many talented artisans!
