Scarecrows & Pumpkins & Plants, Oh My!
Bring the kids and come check out scarecrows, pumpkins and plants on the Windsor Town Green at Farmers' Market Sunday, Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Pumpkins will be popping up everywhere: There will be giant, locally grown pumpkins on display and the town is hosting "Pumpkin Car Races." Children are invited to build their own "pumpkin car" out of mini-punks and race them down tracks that make a vertical drop.
Windsor's annual Scarecrows will be on display -- it's a town education fundraiser that pits local clubs and businesses against each other in a contest to build the best scarecrow.
And the Windsor Garden Club will be selling fall veggie and flower plant starts, cookbooks, and Succulent Pumpkins. The succulent-topped pumpkins come in a variety of shapes and sizes and with care will last through spring, when you can toss out the gourd and replant the succulents in pots or your garden. The club will also have a photo booth with props; bring your cellphones and cameras and take a few selfies while you're browsing for plants.
Look for us at the corner of McClelland Drive and Market Streets by the Snoopy statue.
Proceeds from the annual Fall Pumpkin & Plant Sale fund the nonprofit Windsor Garden Club and its garden education and beautification projects around Windsor, including the Town Green Community Garden.
