Holiday Celebration at the Garden Center this Saturday!

Join us for a Holiday Celebration, this Saturday (Dec. 6) at Edward’s Garden Center!

Edward's Garden Center Holiday Celebration - Dec 6 2014 - Edward's Garden Center

To get you and the whole family into the holiday spirit, we have many events planned and special guests stopping by. The celebration starts at 9 a.m. and runs through 6 p.m.

Santa and two of his reindeer will be here to visit with all the kids and make sure each and everyone of them is on his nice list 😉 Kids and pets can also have their photo taken with Santa.

Entertainment will be provided by, the always popular, Dani-Elle. For those of you who haven’t been to one of the Garden Center events recently, this is Dani-Elle Kleha‘s fourth appearance.  She is a nationally known singer, from Jermyn Pa., who has two albums that she made in Nashville.  Anyone who attended our Christmas party last year or either of our Open House events this year, knows what a wonderfully entertaining young woman she is and can tell you, you don’t want to miss her performance.

Edward’s Garden Center, and owner Ed Kopec, are enthusiastic supporters of Blue Chip Animal Farms Animal Rescue. To help raise some funds for Blue Chip, Ed suggested an ornament contest. Everyone is invited to make an ornament for the Christmas tree. Anyone who brings an ornament will have the chance to win a $100 gift card to the Garden Center. The gift card will go to the creator of the best pet ornament, according to our staff.

Several food vendors will be ready to serve some delicious treats. Mrs. Fritz will be back with her homemade treats and hot soup will be available.

The highlight of the evening will happen at 5 p.m. when Nick and Tobey Kelly light the Christmas tree, in honor of all the pets in our area who have been adopted from Blue Chip.

This is a holiday party you don’t want to miss (and one that doesn’t require an ugly Christmas sweater lol)! If you need any ideas for creating your pet ornament, visit our Pinterest page.

Hope to see everyone at the Celebration on Saturday!
