Inside Scoop: Fall Festival September 26 & 27

Here at Edward’s Garden Center we are very excited for fall’s arrival! To celebrate, we are holding our annual Fall Festival September 26 & 27 and we hope to see many of our customers with their whole families!

As with all of our festivals and open house events, we have many events and vendors planned. Since you are our loyal readers and customers, we’ll let you in on everything that’s going on.

Fall Festival at Edward's Garden CenterGiant Pumpkin Contest
Every year we have put a giant pumpkin on display and let everyone guess on its weight. This super popular contest is back! You can enter right now on our Facebook page or enter your guess at the Festival this weekend.

Pony Rides
Back by popular demand, pony rides will be available both Saturday and Sunday all day! The kid’s from our Open House and last year’s Fall Festival LOVED the pony rides. Bring your kiddos so they can enjoy!

Face Painting
Another favorite for the kids, Face Painting by Jessica will be back. Each time she comes she offers more character, animal, butterfly options and so many more. Face painting is available 1 pm to 4 pm both days.

Pet Costume Parade and Contest
This event was a huge success last year. We got to see so many wonderful pets and their parents last year. If you want to enter your pet in the contest, you should get to the Garden Center at least half an hour early. There may be quite a few contestants. Our staff will chose their favorite pets and the pet parents will win gift cards and be featured on our website.

Live Entertainment
The popular local band Three Imaginary Boys will be providing some awesome music on Sunday from 12 pm to 2 pm. Stop by and enjoy!

One of our favorite features for this Fall Festival is our children’s area “Home of Gnomes” which will be totally complete and ready for all the kids to enjoy. We have a train display, checker board and lots of gnomes to find! Make sure the kids take a walk through.

Delicious Food Vendors
As always, we will have several delicious food offerings for our guests. Stop by and check out your favorites like Smoking’ Jay’s BBQ.
