Hard to believe it is real, but it is. There were many people using it as the background for photos. One couple getting married posed in their wedding clothes.
The town of Dresden is very nice with lots of shopping and oh yes,a large basket. Nice to see once but certainly not worth coming to Dresden for that only. It is what it is,take a few pictures and move on.
You can see this building from various driving points...really neat landmark. Didn't get a chance to go inside but definitely will try on my next visit.
Overall it felt like a good event this year and ran smoothly and it was not crowded. They did change locations of several events due to rain and originally renamed some locations so that was a little confusing.
We visited the Longaberger Homestead and this was just a few miles away the basket was nice area around it was a little overgrown. But the real jewel was the town the people were so nice and very friendly little shops had eveything you could want.
it is amazing just seeing the worlds largest basket, you are in awe ,, like how did they do that, it is amazing what you can do , once you set your mind on it, pretty neat
If you love this basket stuff, I guess its cool. I see this place often. Its been here for several years now. A little beat up.
Built in the 70s for parades in the Dresden area and once the symbol of the Longaberger Basket Company, this site has since been eclipsed by the spectacular HQ bldg which is in Newark, and is in reality now The World's Largest Basket, handles and all.
