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.

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.

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

Edward's Garden Center Events

The Facts

When: Saturday & Sunday, June 6 & 7, from 8 am to 4pm

What’s happening: Both days there will plenty to do and to see! We have Face Painting by Jessica making her return to paint beautiful masterpieces on the kids’ hands and faces. The kids at the past few events loved being transformed into their favorite characters and animals. Back by popular demand, we will have pony rides! Pony Party Paradise will be back with their lovely ponies.

Blue Chip Animal Rescue will be bringing a few of their pets who need to find “furever” homes. Visit with a few pets all day Saturday and Sunday. Proceeds from this event help support Blue Chip.

You can’t have a special event, without good food right? Not to worry, we will have several food vendors ready to provide you with tasty treats.

We also can’t forget to mention the reasons people visit Edward’s Garden Center every day. Kids love our scavenger hunt to find all of our animals. Kids love it because they get to meet all the animals and at the end of the scavenger hunt they get a prize bag. Our quality plants, trees and flowers also draw people from all over the Wyoming Valley. And don’t forget to stop into the gift shop to pick up some unique items.

Parking and admission for the Open House are free!

Rain or shine we hope to see you there! We promise you will see why Edward’s Garden Center is truly “A Place to Explore and Enjoy!”
