WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Gardens and artists took center stage on a rainy Saturday in West Lafayette.
Hundreds of people came out for the Fourth Annual Art in Bloom Garden Tour. West Lafayette In Bloom Committee Chair Lynn Layden said seven gardens in the community were open to the public.
At each garden local artists were able to display their work for sale.
Layden said the gardens on the tour won a Beautification Award from the city this year.
The award started in 2004 and in 2009 the garden tours began after public demand. The gardens at the Lilly Nature Preserve were also open to the public.
"These are all native plants," Layden said about those at the Lilly Nature Preserve. " And I don't think [people] realized what wide variety of native plants there are. In the shady gardens they'll see the wide variety of shady plants."
Layden said the garden tour will continue next year.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) proposed a pre-K voucher program as part of his 2014 agenda. The program would give underprivileged children access to pre-K programs.
Several generations gathered Saturday to remember a day that will live in infamy. The day marked 72 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor.
