Green Bay Botanical Garden features annual Garden Fair


GREEN BAY - Meanwhile, the planting season is in full swing and Green Bay Botanical Garden is the place to be this weekend for all of your planting needs.

Shuttle buses brought thousands of people out to the annual Garden Fair Saturday.

There they could shop from more than 85 vendors featuring flower and fruit plants as well as chairs and tables for the backyard.

This is the 30th year for the event and organizers say the beautiful weather is going to help with turnout.

"I hope its going to be record breaking. I would hope so. It's a gorgeous weather and this is probably the first year in a long time that we've had great weather all three days," said Eileen Wesener with the Green Bay Botanical Garden.

Sunday is the last day for the fair.

The event raises upwards of $70 thousand every year for the garden's horticulture and education programs.
