Premier nursery and garden center Nicholson-Hardie is pleased to announce its Sixth annual Fall Fest events on Oct. 26. Beginning at 11 a.m., there are activities for the whole family to enjoy.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., professional face painter Karen Weiss will be offering free face painting. Transform into the classic Halloween favorite, the cat, or become a fright inducing werewolf with Weiss’ unique style of face painting.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the family can see professional pumpkin carver Bill Bush create a work of art. Bush, a native to North Texas, has been featured on HGTV and demonstrated his craft at the Dallas Museum of Art and the State Fair of Texas. His carved pumpkins will also be available for purchase.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. there will be a Hot Dog and Chili Taste Off and a Fall Harvest Bake Off. Nicholson-Hardie encourages those interested to make their favorite child recipe to enter into the taste off. Master griller Michael Bracken will serve up grilled hot dogs and chili, including some homemade chilis to add to the hot dogs. Nicholson-Hardie will provide the refreshments.
All are invited to bring in a fall harvest baked good to enter into the bake off. Entrants must use a main ingredient harvested in the fall, such as pecans, walnuts, pumpkins, squash, apples, etc. The winner will receive a $250 Nicholson-Hardie gift certificate.
Also from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tim Miller will be using his John Deer tractor to make delectable homemade ice cream. Flavors include chocolate, traditional vanilla, Berry-licious strawberry, scary-dreamy-creamy-peach and the fall sensation: pumpkin.
At 4 p.m. the final Fall Bake Off entrants will be judging the two finalists. They will select the winners of each category and award the prizes.
The Fall Fest will be at the Nicholson-Hardie Nursery at 5060 W. Lovers Lane Dallas, TX 75209. Call them at 214-357-4674 for more information, or just stop by on Oct. 26 to enjoy a full day of fall fun.
