Indian Summer Festival & Updates From Lincoln Memorial Garden

Oct 11, 2013

Joel Horwedel - Executive Director of LMG

Lincoln Memorial Garden & Nature Center may well be Springfield's most celebrated destination for nature-enthusiasts. With over 100 acres of wilderness and trails, it provides a serene landscape along Lake Springfield for residents and tourists to soak in some sun and fresh air, free of charge. 

Earlier this year a new executive director stepped in when the previous one retired. And he's prepping for his first Indian Summer Festival - an annual event celebrating the beginning of fall with activities like pumpkin decorating as well as food and live entertainment. Joel Horwedel tells us what's in store this year for the fest and some changes at the garden: 

"Indian Summer Festival: The Garden's annual festival held Oct. 12 and 13 from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. each day featuring food, crafts, entertainment and children's activities. Admission $5 per individual over 12 years, $3 for children 12 and under. Infants and toddlers under 2 are free." (
