If you get to go, you've to see the wonders of "Miniature Miracle" at the "Ave Maria Grotto." It's 3 acres filled with miniature replicas from all over the world. For more information about Ave Maria Grotto CLICK HERE.
In the past years, it's either cold or wet during the Bloomin' Festivals. One year, about a couple of years ago, it was actually very pleasant outside. I'm hoping to get to go this year because I need a new windchime. I bought a nice windchime there about 15 years ago and it lasted about 8-10 years before the lines broke from dry rot.
