The weekend kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday with a rededication ceremony of the historic Ellessdie Chapel and its newly painted interior. Following the ceremony on Saturday, local artists will set up throughout the park to create landscape art as part of a live ‘Plein Air’ event. Local artwork will be on exhibit and available for purchase in the chapel from 10a.m. to 4:30p.m.
