NEW JERSEY – It’s bushels of fun at the NJBG Harvest Fest on Saturday, October 13, and Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (rain or shine) at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden in Ringwood. This weekend packed with family fun is sponsored by NJBG and the Ringwood Chamber of Commerce.

There are activities for all ages, including hay rides, pumpkin painting, free children’s games, an autumn plant sale, and a fairway full of booths and exhibits. A beer garden, all day music, and tasty things to eat will ensure a good time for all. Take one of the free guided garden tours, or wander through the Gardens on your own self-guided tour. And don’t forget to bring your camera, as there’ll be plenty of fine photo ops.
