The Container Contest is judged by the public during the two-day event, and the People's Choice awards will be presented, Sunday at 3 pm. The terrific prizes are donated by local business and garden centers.  Join us and show us your creativity.

Adults and children are invited to participate in the contest by bringing the special garden you created in a planter, a crock, a tub, or any funky container that appeals to you.
