Garden Festival 2018

Weather mostly held up for the annual Home and Garden Festival in Chestnut Hill, Sunday May 20.

Chestnut Hill business District director Philip Dawson said tricky weather forecasting, including the postponement from the original date of May 6, made things “challenging”, but  he was pleased with the final result – attendance was good and the Avenue was busy.

“I have to give credit to our dedicated staff, who worked overtime to plan the event for the original date, and then managed the logistical challenge of moving the entire festival to the rain date,” he said. “Despite the change of date, we were pleased that over 90% of our registered vendors and businesses still came out, all of our scheduled bands performed, and festivalgoers were not deterred by the possibility of showers.”
