Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - The 15th Annual Garden in the Park event is set for Saturday, May 1.

Keep Opelika Beautiful is hosting Garden in the Park this year at the Opelika Municipal Park. It will be held rain or shine, so be sure to attend when the event is held from 8am to 3pm.

This event is Opelika's annual festival that features handmade and homegrown art. "We are thrilled to host Garden in the Park this year. One asset to this event is that every item sold has been created, painted, planted, or built by the person selling the item. Many of our artists come back year after year," said Tipi Miller, director of Keep Opelika Beautiful.

Garden in the Park is an outdoor event that will provide a variety of items for sale, including handmade jewelry, bags, paintings, plants, personalized items, children's clothing, and pottery. Children can have their own fun planting seeds and making flower vases. Food vendors will also be available selling all sorts of delicious festival goodies, like cakes, hotdogs, fish, pies, smoothies, and more.

There is no fee to attend the event. Masks will be encouraged but not required. Attendees are asked to leave their personal pets at home. Safety precautions such as social distancing and hand sanitizing stations will be available.

The annual Garden in the Park is sponsored this year by the following:
