My daughter and I are attending tomorrow. They are calling for rain this weekend but since we need it here so badly I am sure everyone will not mind walking around the gardens with their umbrella’s and looking at the beautiful gardens. There are no shelters there so bring those umbrellas along just in case.
Parking is available at the entrance to the gardens. Visitors with disabilities will be driven from the parking lot to the gardens in golf carts.
Please were appropriate shoes for walking.

The event itself is the brainchild of Bobbi Bishop and here late husband, Bruce, who sought to teach the value of gardening and being outdoors. The land has been donated to the Local Hocking Hills School District for labs.
This will be the 21st anniversary for the Lily Fest.
Areas and plots of the gardens are kept up by local volunteers.
New this year will be its first Japanese Garden. The garden is the work of 17 year old Hannah Taulbee.
I am anxious to see what she has created.
