Our 2016 garden tour was a sunny sensation
Thanks to all who came to the 2016 Bainbridge In Bloom garden tour this weekend — and there were A LOT of you!
Over the two-day tour, we welcomed visitors from around Puget Sound and out-of-state travelers from Idaho, California, Colorado, Indiana, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Canada. Bainbridge In Bloom is not just a regional but a national draw!
We are so grateful to our amazing garden hosts for welcoming visitors; to the fine local musicians who delighted guests with their sounds throughout the weekend; to our sponsors who made the event possible with their generous financial support; and of course our many volunteers who manned the Garden Hub at the Filipino-American Hall, helped with parking at each venue, and guided visitors through the sights and scents of each stop on the tour. Together, you made our 28th annual garden tour one to remember.
We’ll be posting more photos from the tour here and on our Facebook page very soon; if you’re not already following us on social media, now is a great time to start! “Like” us and watch for announcements about our AHB programming throughout the coming weeks.
For now, with a fabulous Bainbridge In Bloom behind us, from all of us at Arts & Humanities Bainbridge … THANK YOU!
