Six private gardens will be opened to the public Saturday for the Twilight Tour Garden Walk.
A benefit for the Ripon Area United Way, the annual garden walk will enable visitors to enjoy a casual stroll through the peaceful setting of local gardens, where nature and mankind have joined forces in harmony.
The gardens will be open from 2 to 7 p.m., with tickets costing $10 in advance, or $12 at any of the gardents.
The tour will feature refreshments, garden art, plant sale, live music, professional horticulturists and more.
A map of the route and locations will be provided with a purchased ticket. Each ticket also will provide the chance to win door prizes including a beautiful, home-grown perennial donated by participating gardeners.
The garden walk provides an opportunity for growers of all skill levels to get out and enjoy nature and to share ideas with other gardeners. It will take place rain or shine.
