After the summer we have had, I would not be surprised if many of you have been looking forward to fall. We have been greeted with fabulous weather for the past few weeks which may last a while longer…I sure hope so! If we can add in a few rainy days, it would be perfect. It will be wonderful if we can have a lengthy fall to allow the trees to exhibit their gorgeous array of color. Only time will tell….in the meantime Suburban Lawn & Garden offers a lot to keep you busy!
October is a BIG month at Suburban Lawn & Garden! Our HUGE Tree and Shrub Sale has begun (including Japanese Maples),
For those who are not familiar with our Pumpkin Patch Festivities, it is geared toward the entire family. We have popcorn for everyone, hayrides to the “pumpkin patch”and visits from Cowgirl Kate and Witch Hazel. In addition, every child gets a free baby pumpkin! Check out our slide show of last year’s event!
That’s not all! On Sunday, October 16th from noon to 3:00 p.m. the Kansas City MO Mounted Patrol will be at our Wornall location. In 2003, a not-for-profit corporation was created to assist with funding of a full-time Mounted Patrol. Within about 3 years, the Mounted Patrol Section was formed within the Special Operations Division of the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department.
Ten horses were donated to the unit and partnering with the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department, the horses are stabled in Swope Park. The Mounted Patrol unit performs various duties from crowd control to community relations. They are able to traverse over ground that vehicles are unable, making them invaluable in certain circumstances. I hope you can bring the family out to visit with the officers and their horses, I am sure they will be happy to satisfy some of your curiosities!
More, you say? Well…OK!! Cowgirl Kate will begin appearing at our stores beginning on October 8th. Her full schedule is detailed within the events section of our Facebook page. She will be entertaining us and creating fabulous balloon art for you to take with you. The majority of her appearances will be at our Wornall location, but she will also be visiting our Roe store on Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, October 16th.
OK, ok….I know I have completely overwhelmed you with all of these wonderful events going on, but our festivities would not be complete without a visit from Witch Hazel!! A special treat is in store for all of us on October 30th from noon to 4:00 p.m. Come out and be “treated” to this fantastically wonderful character!
Cowgirl Kate has been entertaining audiences young and old in the Midwest region for over a decade. She specializes in creative Balloon Art Twisting. Cowgirl Kate’s performance is interspersed with impromptu comedy and vernacular phrases from times past. Cowgirl Kate is perfect for getting your party started with her energy and expertise! ~ Cowgirl Kate
I hope you can come out and visit us during this event…we will look forward to seeing you!! And as always:
