Hey there, everybody. We just want to remind you about all the fun activities going on at Meadowbrooke Gourds during our Open House all during the month of October. Every weekend has something for everyone and great family adventures. First of all, throughout the month, weekdays as well as weekends, you can pick your own pumpkin and ornamental gourds. These can make beautiful centerpieces and other decorations for the season. Read all about our pumpkin patch in this previous post.
Starting tomorrow – Oct. 1st & 2nd – is our much anticipated Oops! Sale. You’ll get fantastic discounts on our beautiful gourds that have minor flaws and defects. (Many flaws you won’t even be able to tell, but they didn’t make our standards to be on the shelf.) This weekend and the 30th we have Gourd Painting classes as well!
Discover the artist in you on the second and third weekends – Oct. 8th & 9th and Oct. 15th & 16th – when you draw a design and we carve that exact drawing on a gourd to create your own unique Jack-o’-Lantern. And here’s something special: At least one of the best of these will be featured in our 2011 catalog! Your design may be sold nation-wide!
October 22nd & 23rd we will offer tours of or farm, Wagon Rides, and a special Customer Appreciation Sale. You’ll get 25% off anything in our retail store. Perhaps best of all is the bonfire on Saturday evening, featuring live music, an auction, and FREE hotdogs and soda. Download the flier so you know what’s going on when. We’ll remind you, too, as each weekend approaches. If you’re not already a member of our Facebook Fan Page, we will be updating with pictures from our open house events! We are also running a Facebook contest throughout the month of October.
We hope to see you this weekend!
