After a 1-year break, Bricks and Bloom will again usher in Spring on the downtown brick streets of Gladewater. The lawn and garden show, sponsored by the Gladewater Mirror Newspaper, will bring flower and plant vendors, as well as advice and tips from area Master Gardeners, together in one place Saturday, March 22, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on East Pacific Avenue.
"We received a lot of calls asking if Bricks and Bloom would be held this year and when we found out it had no sponsor, we decided to sponsor the event ourselves," said Mirror publisher Jim Bardwell. "It was a great success two years ago. We are providing the venue downtown for all the vendors and we hope this will become an annual event for Gladewater."
The Gladewater Lions Club will be selling a variety of Spring flowers with the proceeds going to help fund its many charitable programs and the Gladewater Garden Club will be on hand selling "knockout roses," and sharing valuable gardening advice. Local businesses also have signed up to show off gardening equipment and supplies.
The event will feature local and area vendors as well as a beekeeper, master gardeners, representatives with landscaping information, forestry management speakers and others. A pet rescue van with dogs available for adoption will also be there.
Booth space is available for $50. For more information or to reserve booth space call 903-845-2235.
