Amish Ascenion Day
May 30, 2019
Today, May 30th, the Amish community in Lancaster is celebrating Ascension day. This holiday commemorating Jesus’s physical ascension to heaven. This religious holiday falls 40 days after Easter Sunday. The Amish celebrate by closing their businesses and spend time with friends and family.
If you’re considering taking a Countryside Bus tour please note that Amish businesses will be closed. The bus will still make two stops, just at local, non-Amish owned stores. Amish made products and souvenirs are always available for purchase in our gift shop, 7 days a week.
