A special day for children was held in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens on August 7, 2016. The day was extra special because it was part of the Centennial celebration of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. The first Garden was established in 1916 so 2016 is the Centennial anniversary.
4 Gardens were featured: Estonian, Finnish, Indian and Lebanese.

In each Garden there were activities and fun for kids (and their parents).
For example, in the Finnish Garden the kids leaned some basic Finnish greetings and other words. They also were able to make their own Finnish flag and have the Finnish flag painted on their hands!

In the Estonian Garden, they learned that the Cornflower is the national flower of Estonia. And they had story time with Erika Puussar and learned some Estonian words. Then they played a game that every kid in Estonia plays.
