Sip
We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t wait until the snow melted to start enjoying patio season. It’s time to kick back & crack open a cold one in our very own Beer Garden, presented by CJAY 92 and landscaped by CLS Landscape Supply. That’s right, grab a brew and check out the latest in landscaping to get you inspired for spring. With a wide variety of local and international brews to sip, you'll be counting down the days until you can hang in your outdoor oasis.

Shovel
Ok, you may not get a chance to actually shovel but you can definitely get your hands in some soil right inside the Corral! Stop by the Blue Grass Garden Centre Living Green Workshops to bring a touch of spring into your home and get your hands (just a little) dirty making your own trendy terrarium or planter. The experts from Blue Grass Garden Centre will teach you how to build your very own unique indoor garden with succulents, air plants, mini tropical plants, and materials from start to finish.
