Showcase your garden skills at Lewiston GardenFest's container garden contestby jmaloni
Have you always wanted to have your own little garden spot where you can showcase your creativity and share it with others? Well, the Lewiston GardenFest has just the contest for you!
The fourth annual GardenFest container contest will be held on Center Street in Lewiston June 21-22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., during the Lewiston GardenFest. The container contest is sponsored by the Lewiston Garden Club and is judged by the public during the two-day event.
The People's Choice awards will be presented Sunday at 4 p.m. This year, the grand prize for the contest has been donated by Niagara Jet Adventures. The winner will receive a certificate for two people to experience the new Niagara River boat ride departing from Youngstown. Additional prizes have been donated by local business and garden centers.
Display your creativity by bringing your special garden in a planter, a crock, a tub, or any container that appeals to you. Find a container; even found objects make the most interesting vessels. They can range from discarded shoes to old purses and lampshades.
