The timing of The 2015 County Garden Show at The Crystal Palace in Picton could not have been better. After days of heavy rainfall, Prince Edward County saw a day of sunshine and warm breezes on Saturday, June 13th!
Staff and Vendors had put in a lot of hours preparing for this day, and all were rewarded with our most successful PEC Horticultural Society Garden Show to-date. Over 700 attendees agreed!
We had a few very special guests outside the Crystal Palace this year. The Alpaca joined us, thanks to Chetwyn Farms.
Vendors both inside and out enjoyed the day, and over 50% already confirmed for 2016.
The Flower Show featured 125+ competitive offerings and was officially opened by Penny Stewart, OHA District 3 Director.
The popular Victorian Tea had tables full from 11:30 onward. Demand was once again high for this Silver Service luncheon.
This year, the Blue Bird Room featured 4H celebrating 100 years, along with featured floral designs. A book sale, Ikebana display, Food Bank booth, Music Festival booth (with music provided!), the Master Gardeners, and CLIC rounded out Blue Bird Room presentations.
Our Raffle boasted more prizes and more tickets sold than in previous years, with all proceeds going toward County projects.
Thanks once again this year to Vendors, Sponsors and an exceptional Team of Staff and Volunteers!
