Plant Sale and Festival!
Today we are off to visit one of Florida’s most remarkable experiences, dazzling visitors since 1929.
This is a special day at Bok Towers as it is their Annual Boktoberfest Plant Sale and Festival. This marks the beginning of Florida’s gardening season. Close to 50 vendors from across the state will offer a variety of plants for sale. Garden Art, Bird Feeders, Stained glass, Pottery, wind chimes and so much more will be available for you to purchase. There will also be Educational Vendors for you to talk to about Florida foliage. Since there is a large festival going on, you will have your pick of food vendors to enjoy lunch from. Why not try some of the authentic German food that will be available?
Through its historic landscape gardens, unique Singing Tower carillon and magnificent 1930s Mediterranean-style mansion, Bok Tower and Gardens offer unparalleled opportunities for artistic, cultural, personal and spiritual enrichment.
“Bok Tower Gardens boasts one of the greatest works of famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. The meandering, historic landscape garden was designed to be a contemplative and informal woodland setting offering a series of romantic recesses and tranquil resting spots, picturesque vistas and breathtaking views of the Singing Tower. Acres of ferns, palms, oaks and pines fashion a lush backdrop for flowering foliage and the spectacular seasonal color of azaleas, camellias and magnolias (a highlight of our spring peak bloom season) showcasing an ever-changing work of art.” Looking up at the 205-foot neo-Gothic and art deco Singing Tower carillon is an experience like no other. The Tower houses one of the world’s finest carillons. Concerts from the 60-bell carillon at 1 and 3 p.m. fill the Gardens daily.
You will have a tour of the Davidson of Dundee Citrus Candy, Marmalade and Jelly factories. See how candy is made in copper kettles and their packing procedures. Then it’s off to the free sample counter where you can taste a variety of products. The Gift Shop has a variety of novelties and is sure to make your day complete!
This is a wonderful day out and not to be missed. Ask your Legendary Journeys agent for details.
