Lewiston GardenFest, presented by the Lewiston Garden Club, is set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this weekend along Center Street. The Saturday-Sunday festival includes approximately 70 vendors selling flowers, plants and handcrafted garden art essentials, along with a garden walk, speakers, a container garden contest, and more throughout the weekend.
Proceeds benefit beautification projects and academic scholarships.
