Free Admission to ‘Boktoberfest’ near Orlando – October 15

Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales will offer free admission for the third annual Boktoberfest Plant Sale on October 15 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The event will feature live music, German food, craft beers, tree climbing and activities for kids. Live music will be provided by Alpine Express, a four-member lederhosen ensemble performing authentic German music. The group plays instruments from Germany, Austria and Switzerland including long Swiss alphorns the size of trees; a wooden Alpine xylophone, that is often referred to as “wooden laughter;” the “Singing Saw” and more.

“Boktoberfest celebrates the start of Florida’s gardening season,” explains David Price, Gardens’ president, “where plant lovers and gardeners can come to find a wide variety of Florida plants and learn from experts to help make the most of their garden.” Some of the plants for sale will include orchids, palms, trees, tropical fruits, Florida natives, ferns, bamboo, roses, heliconias, bromeliads, tillandsia air plants and water lilies. Education will be provided by Master Gardeners, plant societies, garden clubs and the UF-IFAS Extension Service. Florida wildflower expert Dr. Walter Taylor and popular radio host Tom MacCubbin, Florida’s foremost expert on lawn and garden issues, will host educational workshops along with other gardening experts.

Voted “Florida’s Best Garden,” the National Historic Landmark was dedicated in 1929 as a gift from world peace advocate Edward Bok. Nearly 700 acres of conservation lands and gardens surround a 205-foot neo-Gothic and art deco Singing Tower carillon and Pinewood Estate, a 20-room, Mediterranean-style 1930s winter retreat. The popular Central Florida destination is a haven for wildlife with hidden geocaches and rare plants found nowhere else in the world where visitors come to relax and escape the stress of today’s busy world.
