Just bring your favorite ice cream topping, cookies, brownies, or other snack foods such as cut veggies or fruit. (Bluebell is the default; but feel free to bring a carton of any special ice cream you need.)

Interesting garden-related products will be available for your education and purchase at each vendorís table. Raffles will be held throughout the evening, giving away products and gift certificates donated by sponsoring vendors. Be sure to get your free raffle ticket when you arrive!
