Fall Festival at Alta Vista Gardens on Saturday, October 10

Join us on October 10th
for another fun day for families in beautiful Alta Vista Botanical Gardens! This Fall Festival is a FREE event and runs from 10 am to 3 pm.

Create a scarecrow - bring your own set of clothes OR use from our collection. We provide the head, supplies and stuffing --  and you provide the construction and creativity.  $2 to enter the Scarecrow contest with some FUN prizes!  Scarecrow contest closes at 12:30, so come early and get started!

Enjoy fall craft and fairy garden planting activities, bob for apples and decorate pumpkins.  Facepainting by the Miss Pride of Vista Lions court.  Active games include the suitcase scarecrow relay, sending pumpkins flying high from the parachute and sweeping pumpkins up and down the hill.

Tanya's Dance and music from Vic round out the fun in the Children's Garden.

Buy some plants at our Plant Sale, visit with our vendors, and buy BBQ lunch from the Amigos de Vista Lions.

Volunteers welcome - give us your community service hours!  We really need clean-up helpers if you can come at 2 pm!

Around The Town Pick Up Stix Giveaway!

***NEW AROUND THE TOWN GIVEAWAY! I just finished lunch at Pick Up Stix. Today it was Chicken & Vegetables for me. It was delish and a full size entree is only 360 calories which leaves you nothing to feel guilty about!

Checking over their menu, they have some new things going on...for a limited time they have brought back a customer favorite, Lemon Chicken. They also have a newer salad, their Chopped Asian Vinaigrette with Quinoa. Need to try!

Now for the giveaway! If you would like to win a certificate for a FREE entree of your choice at Pick Up Stix, you need to head on over to Around The Town's Facebook page.  All you need to know will be pinned to the top of the page.  GOOD LUCK and look for more Pick Up Stix giveaways in the near future!
