I’ve spent plenty of my life hanging around many of the Mennonite meccas like Goshen and Lancaster, but Harrisonburg is one that I’ve only visited a few times. This past weekend was probably the first time I’ve been there as an adult. At the invitation of my sister-in-law I spent a few hours wandering around downtown taking pictures of the buildings and the blooms. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I hope you’ll enjoy the results of my wanderings. I’ve included a few pastoral scenes from the wedding and reception sites as well.
I found this fountain in the courthouse square. Spanish translation of the sign: Water (misspelled with a Q) is bad, please don’t drink. Apparently the water is not bad for English speakers. Or else the sign’s authors feel Spanish speakers need more convincing.
