Our recent heat wave notwithstanding, it will soon be time for hayrides, painted faces, a pumpkin-painting station, a spooky story-time and sweet treats.
In other words, the annual McAdam Pumpkin Party is just around the corner, on Saturday, October 21st at our Nursery & Garden Center.
From Noon to 3 p.m., the seasonal bash will offer those festive elements with a musical and Halloween-themed decorative backdrop. As in years past, the party is for the entire family and community—and it’s all free.
We will also offer significant discounts on perennials, shrubs, trees, select evergreens and roses, among other items. Our professionals will be on hand to give tips on how to winterize your garden and so you can learn what you can still plant. It is truly not too late for you to undertake those efforts.
Our Garden Center is a half-mile south of Roosevelt Road, on the southwest side of Forest Park, at 2001 Des Plaines Ave.
We always enjoy seeing familiar faces and catching up with old friends, as well as making new ones, at the Pumpkin Party each year. Whichever category you fit into, mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing you and your family on the 21st!
