Fort Worth, TX, September 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- On October 1 all Calloway’s and Cornelius Nursery locations in the Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston markets will bring in the fall season with a bounty of Texas grown pumpkins, gourds and squash as the Texas-based garden center transforms into a farmer’s market to host its annual Fall Harvest Festival from 9 am until 7 pm.
The family-friendly event offers free activities and crafts for children, a gardening clinic for adults and light refreshments. Throughout the day customers can shop from Calloway’s Pumpkin Patch while children can decorate a free pie pumpkin and participate in various activities such as taking pictures, creating a chalk garden, watching the Mad Science demonstration and playing in the gigantic bounce house. Gardening experts will be available to answer gardening questions and provide advice on how to spruce up the landscape after the extremely hot Texas summer.
“Pumpkins, squash and gourds are a sure sign that fall is here. We’ve also got a lot of fall color with our fresh shipments of Pansies, Petunias and Celosia,” Kimberly Bird, Vice President of Retail Marketing remarked.
