The time has finally come to grab the family and make your way over to Linvilla Orchards for their annual Tomato and Pear Festival! The fun filled, yearly event will be held next Saturday, August 23rd. There’s no better time of year to get your favorite fruit fix than now, and the Orchards’ ‘pick your own’ will be open starting at 8am.
Exciting educational sessions will be held at different times throughout the festival. Linvilla’s Beekeeper Warren Graham will also be discussing his practice from 10am-5pm. He will be selling his delicious locally produced honey all day, so don’t miss out! At 10am, learn all you need to know about tomatoes at the Tomato Talk and Tasting with Farmer Norm- impress your friends with your knowledge!
There will be plenty of entertainment for adults and kids alike. Officer Offbeat will be juggling around the festival from 12pm-4pm and will put on his own spectacular performance on stage at 12:30pm. Costumed characters will also be making frequent appearances, and kids can also join in on face painting, pony rides, and more! When you’re tired from all the fruit picking, catch The Ultimates at one of their live shows which begin at 11am and 2pm.
