Something Sunny

Festival celebrates the sunflower

Have a desire to feel like an Italian widow coming out of her grief in the Italian countryside? Well, put on your big black sun hat and mourning sunglasses and get over to Gull Meadow Farms’ Sunflower Festival Aug. 9–11 and 16–18.

You can frolic among the flowers between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day. From Aug. 16-18, the festival coincides with Gull Meadow’s Vintage Market, put on by troVe.

Tickets for the Sunflower Festival are $15 per person and include a wagon ride to the flower fields, admission to family activity areas, and one sunflower to cut and take home. Tickets bought during the second weekend also cover entry into the Vintage Market. For tickets or more information, visit or call 629-4214.
