Pumpkin Festival Success
Last Saturday, we welcomed over 400 people to the Grey Avenue Gardens for our first ever Pumpkin Harvest Festival. Between the 350 pumpkins (harvested with the help of our friends at Peacock Collegiate) and the abundance of straw bales, the event was cozy, welcoming and a whole lot of fun.
We served 300 bowls of chili, listened to wonderful music by Just the Two of Us, Doug Shepard and Megan Nash and made good use of the many fun kids activities. It was so great to see the community come together, young and old, to celebrate the harvest with us. Thanks for coming!
Between the sale of our pumpkins and your donations we were able to raise over $2200.00 at this event. Wow! All the funds raised will go directly back into the garden.
We still have a few pumpkins left here at the office. If you want an extra one, drop by today or Tuesday.
