Fulfill your dreams of lush, beautiful blooms at the 2009 Hyde Park Garden Fair May 15-16. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, this event – Chicago’s oldest community garden sale – will offer ten different plant departments with hundreds of flats of annuals in every color and form, more than 1,000 pots of perennials, beautiful hanging baskets, and unique vines, trees, and shrubs. In all, some 50,000 plants hand-picked by Garden Fair members from area nurseries will be available to bring city gardens, shady spaces, and other growing areas to life.
Families are invited to come in costume and trick-or-treat throughout the Model Railroad Garden to celebrate Halloween and the end of the railroad’s season at Trains, Tricks & Treats on Saturday and Sunday, October 25 and 26. The Model Railroad Garden will be decorated with spider webs, spiders, ghosts, goblins, and pumpkins, as well as seasonal plant materials. Visitors, volunteers, and Garden staff are encouraged to come in costume. An array of treats including candy, temporary tattoos, and glow sticks can be picked up throughout the Model Railroad Garden. Kids can take part in planting activities.
The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-12. Members save $1.
Event hours are from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, weather permitting.
