Eufaula, which was spruced up for the annual Pilgrimage last month, is getting ready for a second round of spring visitors.
The Second Eufaula Garden Festival is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. EDT Saturday. On the tour are 10 gardens. It’s sponsored by the Friends of Fendall Hall. Fendall Hall is an 1860 historic Italianate home that has been completely restored as a house museum.
Ten gardens will be featured, said Carol Kleinhoff, a member of the board of Friends of Fendall Hall. “Some are in the historic district; some are in newer homes. They are all over town.”
Fendall Hall is the center of the tour. That’s where guests can buy tickets and get a meal from one of the many vendors. There is also space on the 5-acre site for families who want to take a picnic lunch.
Tickets are $25, which includes tours of 10 gardens, plus Fendall Hall. You may also buy individual tickets for $5 per garden.
“This is a great day trip for people who live outside Eufaula, like in Columbus,” said Kleinhoff. “We have a great variety of gardens — vegetable, country and formal gardens.”
Summer flowers like roses, daylilies, annuals, Confederate jasmine, hydrangeas and magnolias are almost all in full bloom.
Fendall Hall is at 917 W. Barbour St.
