Old City Green Fest This Weekend!

It’s no secret that I love Old City Green and what it adds to our neighborhood (check out my post about its one year anniversary way back in 2009 here).  Admittedly the nursery recently became an advertiser here on, but I’d gush about them and continue to promote happenings and events there regardless.

This coming weekend, to celebrate three years of business and community outreach, OLD CITY green is hosting a full-on October-fest. There will be games, workshops, music, food, scary movies, and even a haunted house! All are welcome to the festivities!
