INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL LAKESHORE: Celebrate the upcoming holiday season with a French Christmas Concert at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Visitor Center on Friday, December 4, at 7:00 p.m.

Join local folk trio, Trois Canards, made up of Marti Pizzni, Suzanne Keldsen and Dot Pakin, as they sing traditional French Christmas songs. The songs, sung in both French and English, are accompanied by traditional instruments like the fiddle, hurdy gurdy, dulcimer, accordion, guitar and recorder. These songs may well have been enjoyed during the holidays by Joseph Bailly, considered the first permanent European settler in the area, whose home is now preserved within the national lakeshore. So, gather up in the center's theater for this hour and a half concert to enjoy some good holiday music and learn a little about our local history.
