You’ll also be amazed with our centerpiece: a hand-carved wooden map weaving the stories of 19 counties and four cities together through a significant piece of heritage wood from each community.


And don’t forget Fido in the car, we’re pet friendly and have treats awaiting your four-legged friends!
