Mother’s Day Weekend….something a little different!

2014 is Lakewold’s 25th Anniversary and we’re mixing things up for MayFest. In lieu of our traditional Mother’s Day Brunch, we’ve decided to conclude our annual event with an invitation to use your 5 senses. Enjoy the scent of blooming flowers, see the beautiful gardens and exhibits, listen to talented musicians, taste tantalizing treats sold by selected vendors and then touch and take assorted plants and gift items home purchased from Lakewold’s Garden Shop to enjoy well after your visit..

Lakewold welcomes all to visit the gardens on this special weekend. Explore the newly constructed Asian inspired garden. Then enjoy a walk through the Wagner House featuring a variety of exhibits and displays. Upstairs, the Lakewood Arts Commission City of Lakewood in its 5th year of partnership will present over 20 local artists and their favorite works. In the living room, Tacoma artist Natalie Oswald natalieoswald.com has organized aAbeille_Baking hand selected art exhibit, including works from herself, Allison Agostinelli http://fineartamerica.com/ and Lois Yoshida http://loisyoshida.com/.
