DAFFODIL DAY - FLOWER POWER
at Reeves-Reed Arboretum
Sunday, April 14, 11 am to 4 pm
165 Hobart Avenue
Summit, NJ 07901
Summit, NJ Step back to the 1970s and celebrate DAFFODIL DAY at Reeves-Reed Arboretum's annual spring happening, Sunday, April 14, from 11am to 4pm. The Arboretum's daffodil collection, one of the largest in New Jersey, was started in the early 1900s by the original owners of the property, the Wisners. Today the collection boasts more than 50,000 bulbs and DAFFODIL DAY has become one of the most eagerly anticipated signature events at the Arboretum bringing visitors from all over the tri-state area.
Everyone always seems impatient for spring, but daffodil peeking is only one part of the festivities. Why not rock 'on and join the fun with 70s themed games and crafts, face painting, self-guided nature walks, music, food trucks and other vendors. Our special guest this year is Nature Nick's Animal Adventures, where you'll meet exotic animals from all over the world! A cool new take on the old-fashioned petting zoo.
Professional photographer, Bruce Lorenz, an Arboretum favorite, will be on hand to take those special family photographs. And while you're here, stop in to the Wisner House Gallery and enjoy CLOSE-UPS: The Secret Life of Flowers, by John Koeniger. This special exhibit features floral portraits from the grounds of the Arboretum.
So, dust off the bell bottoms and tie-dye, and mark your calendars for Sunday, April 14, from 11 am to 4 pm for DAFFODIL DAY. The admission for nonmembers is $10 per person or $25 per family.
