The Reeves-Reed Arboretum annual fall festival, CELEBRATE FALL, will be held this year on Sunday, Oct. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The highlight of CELEBRATE FALL will be the return of the goats. According to a written statement provided by the arboretum, “Thanks to our friends, Larry and Anne Cihanek from Rhinebeck, NY, our ‘green goats’ will once again be on hand to clear the Arboretum’s historic Daffodil Bowl, as well as provide comic relief with their antics and gentle good-natured frolicking.”
The event also will include games and crafts, a spooky trail, guided garden tours, music, and food trucks.
Admission to CELEBRATE FALL is $8 per person with children younger than 3 free. There will be two time slots and will be limiting the number of participants for each. While pre-registration is not required, it is strongly recommended to ensure entry.
For more information, register or to sponsor a goat (“Send a Kid to the Arboretum”), go to www.reeves-reedarboretum.org or call Althea Llewellyn, environmental educator, at 908-273-8787, ext. 1920.
