Alberta Street is having its first ever week-long Gnome for the Holidays event December 14th through the 22nd. Over thirty businesses will have gnomes hidden in their window displays and participants can seek them out for prizes including a $25 gift certificate to Green Bean Books and an astonishing allotment of candy for an entire year provided by Candy Babel!
On Sunday, December 15th at 1pm Green Bean Books will be having our very own Gnome Forest Festival Celebration! We’ll be sharing gnome-y stories and helping children make their own adorable clothespin gnomes and sparkling mushroom wands to take home!
Afterwards, we encourage families to wander down Alberta Street and use your magical mushroom wands to help you spot all the mischievous gnomes cleverly hidden in the shop windows! Our Forest Festival Celebration is free but registration is required!
