We visited the garden for a picnic lunch and enjoyed the fall flowers and scare crow exibits. It was still fairly warm; so, it was nice to sit at the tables providd in the shade of a tree and enjoy a refreshing lunch.

Amazing! This is one thing you won’t want to miss and where else can you walk off two miles after dinner and be happy? The Festival of Lights covers just about everything a child can imagine including Dinosaurs! Impressive work all done by volunteers!
