Colorful flowers and plants will be on display in gardens and landscapes throughout Gering and Scottsbluff during Theatre West’s 28th annual Garden Walk fundraiser.
This year’s garden walk returns Sunday, June 26, from 4-8 p.m., allowing the public to explore six local landscapes with three Gering locations, two in Scottsbluff and one in the country near Minatare. There are five residential gardens and one non-residential site featured.
Mary Winn, co-chair of the Theatre West garden walk committee, said the event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic and since then, the committee has worked hard to get the event going again. Public participation has varied between 200 and 300 people for the garden walk.
“This year, it’s all Scottsbluff and Gering and another one that we’re kind of counting as Scottsbluff is in the country and their address is actually Minatare,” Winn said. “They’re all beautiful and each one is unique.”
The committee and Theatre West management and advisory board made some changes and special modifications to make the walk enjoyable for everyone.
