Bloom and Bark Farm & Glass Blowing Studio will be teaming up on Saturday only for the Van Buren County Scenic Drive Festival. The weekend long festival is Southeast Iowa’s Largest Arts, Crafts and Flea Market Event! This celebration of fall pulls in thousands of visitors and covers 11 different communities throughout Van Buren County.
