Moonlight in the Garden
Celebrate Summer Thurs., Jul. 20 at the Biedenharn Museum and Garden's Moonlight in
the Garden from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. July's Moonlight is a multi-faceted event featuring Jazz, the Bible Museum, Coke Museum and Store, strolling in the Garden, and the Biedenharn's popular Coke Floats. Admission to the event is $5.00 per person.
 
The Mason Howard Quartet will perform in the Fountain Room from 7:00 pm -8:30 pm. Selections include John Coltrane's "Alabama", "Georgia on my Mind", "Impressions", "New Orleans Rain", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Footprints", and "Mercy Mercy Mercy".
 
The Quartet features Ben Ford, bass, Tyler Schweinefus, drums, Austin George, guitar, and Mason Howard, saxophone. Three members, Schweinefus, George, and Howard are enrolled at ULM as Music Education majors. Bassist Ben Ford plays for the Josh Love band and is a familiar sight around town.
 
The Bible Museum will be open for self-guided tours. Exhibits include Mediterranean Antiquities, Russian Icons, a fascinating array of historic Bibles and "God in the Garden" an exhibit of Impressionistic garden paintings by Henrietta Milan.
 
The Coke Museum and the Museum Store will also be open. In the Museum Store a Soda Jerk will relate the story of Joe Biedenharn and the first bottling of Coca-Cola, and the museum store will feature special sales on jewelry and other items.
 
Of course, what would Moonlight in the Garden be without Coke Floats? These nostalgic treats, ice-cold Coca-Cola poured over vanilla ice cream, are served in the garden by some of the Biedenharn's Soda Jerks. Guests are invited to stroll ELsong Gardens and the Biedenharn's conservatory as the sun sets and the garden lights begin to come on. Sunset occurs around 8:30 pm on Jul. 20. Coke floats are sponsored by The Monroe Creamery and Coca-Cola
 
Guests are asked to enter the garden through the Riverside Gate. Parking is available in three locations: 1) along the levee just across from the entrance, 2) adjacent to the Forsythe Park tennis courts and 3) in the Coke Museum parking lot on Speed Street between 3rd Street and Riverside.
