Westlake Rain and Garden Show set to return in April

This Spring will mark the return of the Annual Rain & Garden Show, hosted by the City of Westlake and the Westlake Watershed Group after a two-year absence. This year’s event will take place Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year’s event will take place at the new Westlake Community Services Center, 28975 Hilliard Blvd. (via Rec Center Drive).

As in past years, the event is free and open to the public. Families of all ages will enjoy a variety of vendors, demonstrations and exhibitors.

The Kid Zone has been extended by an hour this year, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This popular feature includes newly-added Child Passport stops, a face painter, balloon clown, special guests and contests.

The intended theme for this year’s event is "Native plants," meaning plants indigenous to a given geographic area in geologic time. When creating a small garden or restoring acres of land, it is generally best to choose to plant native plants. These plants support local wildlife and play a huge role in soil and water conservation. Native plants offer solutions to environmental problems along with the assortment of colors shapes and textures are eye catching. To learn more on why you should plant native, visit ohiodnr.gov/gonative.
