Things to do in Columbus, Ohio: Plant Time

Planting Time in central Ohio

Plant Fest in Worthington

Is it time to plant things in central Ohio?  Saturday, May 11, 2013 is the annual Plant Fest in Worthington.  The Plant Fest on the Worthington Village Green is 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Saturday, May 11, 2013.

The calendar says it is time to plant. I was talking to a central Ohio arborist a week or so ago who told me we are about two weeks ahead of normal.  Last year was not normal.  Chris Bradley says we could have frost Sunday night / Monday morning… I read the Channel  10 TV meteorologist’s weather warning on Facebook.

There are other plant events in central Ohio on Saturday. The Garden Market in German Village and Gahanna has Herb Day Saturday.  There is a ‘Plant Sale and Gardening Fair’  at Chadwick Arboretum, May 10 to 11, 2013.

Flapper Time

This morning the Facebook page ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ (link in the sidebar) shared an event at Gateway Film Center as posted on  The Gateway Film Center event ties into Baz Luhrmann’s just released film ‘The Great Gatsby.’   Gateway Film Center / says

“Help us bring the Jazz Age back to life with a Gatsby-style shindig. Come dressed in Roaring ’20s fashion and toast the romance of the period with drink specials Gatsby himself would’ve thirsted for.”

Another 1920s inspired event t the Ohio History Center / Ohio Village is on Saturday evening.  Their event  ‘Pleasure of the Cup – Drinks of the Speakeasy’ is Saturday, May 12, 2013 at 7:00 in the evening.

Second Saturday in May

It is time for the Gay Street Moonlight Market. The first Gay Street Moonlight Market was in April. The event is the second Saturday each month from April through___. Nice enough weather for an outdoor market.
