The harvest is in full bloom at the Frederic Remington Art Museums Kids Place.
The 2nd Annual Harvest Festival will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Kids Place and the Ogdensburg Public Library. The 300 block of Washington Street will be blocked off for the event.
Formerly the Lavender and Butterfly Festival, this years festival will focus on the harvest of plants and vegetables in the Kids Place gardens. Ogdensburg Youth Garden Club members will lead tours through the Kids Place gardens throughout the day.
These are heirloom seeds that Remington planted in his lifetime during the late 1800s, said Anne B. Groome, co-leader of the Ogdensburg Garden Club.
The event is open to the public. There is no admission and most activities will be free.
Activities include period games, art activities, face painting, gallery tours, a caricaturist, lavender tea and cookies, music, farmers market, poem readings and songs. A puppet show will be held at 2:15 p.m. Musical performances will be held throughout the day at the gardens.
Well have themed art activities that are based on growing and harvesting your own foods and nature, said Lauren V. Gilmour, education specialist at the Frederic Remington Art Museum.
The museum shop will offer discounts, and children who visit the museum will receive a free Remington art print, Ms. Gilmour said.
The event is held in collaboration with North Country Public Radio, the Seaway Valley Alcohol & Substance Prevention Council. For more information, contact the Museum at 393-2425.
