Of all the weird documentaries I was subjected to as a child, there is one that always comes to mind. I was in the third grade, and the documentary was about cranberry bogs, the marshy beds where cranberries grow. The way the shiny, ruby-colored berries were harvested by flooding the bogs fascinated me; it's an image that's floated around in my brain ever since.
So when I heard that Ocean Spray is creating a Bogs Across America tour by transforming public spaces into cranberry bogs, I was immediately excited. Unfortunately, none of the public bogs are near me, but if you live in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles, then be sure to stop by. And if you do, be sure to snap a photo and share it with the rest of us!
