“Green Goats” help Celebrate Fall at the Arboretum


Sunday, October 23  •   11:00am to 4:00pm

Celebrate the bounty of Fall – golden autumn colors, crisp weather, yummy harvest fare – with family and friends, and goats, at Reeves-Reed Arboretum’s (RRA) eagerly anticipated annual fall festival, CELEBRATE FALL, Sunday, October 23, from 11:00am- 4:00pm

The overarching theme for CELEBRATE FALL this year will be the eagerly anticipated return of the herd of eco-goats.  The “green goats” from upstate New York will once again be on hand to clear the Arboretum’s historic Daffodil Bowl, as well as provide comic relief with their antics and good natured frolicking. You can even sponsor a goat and get your very own Certificate of Good Goatsmanship!

Along with a visit to the goats, the day’s  festivities and harvest happenings will also include games and crafts, face painting, a costume parade, apple cidering, seasonal cooking demonstrations, and an outdoor green market. boy with pumpkin
