Celebrate Fall at the North Shore's Chicago Botanic Garden this Weekend!

It’s hard to believe we’re in October and that fall on the North Shore is in full swing!  As a North Shore Real Estate agent, I love being able to highlights various events and attractions that the North Shore has to offer.  It allows me to offer my clients a full experience of what living on Chicago’s North Shore is all about.  

For those of you who are interested in moving to the North Shore or you currently live in one of its’ charming cities such as Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Northbrook or Deerfield; you won’t want to miss this upcoming event at the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe.  If you haven’t visited this stunning 385 acre garden, this weekend is the perfect time to do so!  You’ll not only be able to enjoy some of the season’s greatest activites, but can take part in the 13th Annual Bulb sale as well!  Take a look!

Fall Bulb Festival
Chicago Botanic Gardens
1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe
Friday- Sunday, October 5th-7th from 10am-4pm

- Visitors are invited to sip cider, wine, and beer, while listening to live music and shopping among more than 20 of the Garden's favorite local vendors. Taste mouth-watering salsas, herbs, and vegetables.  You can also bring home gourmet foods including baked goods, cheeses, and honey. Shop for pumpkins, pottery, soaps, and more. You’ll enjoy this chance to experience the best of the fall harvest!  Children can navigate the straw bale maze, get moving with a fun outdoor fitness activity, enjoy the amazing gourd display, and drop in for such family activities as leaf rubbing, a leaf hunt, and mini-scarecrows.

13th Annual Bulb Sale
- Just a few steps away in the Regenstein Center, visitors will find the perfect bulbs for their gardens at the 13th annual bulb sale, featuring more than 200 varieties of daffodils, tulips, alliums, and other specialty bulbs. The bulbs are from Holland, Scotland, and the United States, brought to you just in time for fall planting. The annual bulb sale is presented by the Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society. The Woman's Board is in its first year of "Growing the Future," a $1 million pledge to the Chicago Botanic Garden. Proceeds for 2012 will support the Garden’s Green Youth Farm and Windy City Harvest community gardening programs.

I hope you’re able to take part in this great event!  You’ll not only be able to visit one of the country’s best gardens, but can celebrate the fall season as well!

As always, I’m here to help you navigate through the North Shore Real Estate market and settle in seamlessly to the North Shore lifestyle.  If you have any questions about the homes currently available on the North Shore or would like to know more about living in one of the North Shore’s vibrant cities; please contact me!
