Thursday March 25th through Sunday March 28th
Attleboro’s recent Winter Night Festival afforded hundreds of visitors new to the Attleboro Arts Museum, a tantalizing foretaste of coming attractions. In just a few weeks, from March 25 through March 28, the museum will celebrate spring’s awakening with its 14th annual Flower Show, “Dusk to Dawn: Gardens that Light Up the Night.”
The unusual theme promises fresh, edgy floral and landscape interpretations along with both new and long-cherished show attractions, including a companion art exhibition entitled “Light and Dark: A Celebration of Contrasts.” There will be workshops for all ages, family entertainment, live easel painting, Juror and People’s Choice awards, a garden club competition, Kids’ Activity Garden, expanded gift gallery, raffles, live plants and daily lunch and desserts by Raymond Norman Cooks.
Popular Boston Cabaret entertainers Valerie Anastasio and Tim Harbold will headline Saturday night’s Flower Show After Hours event, “Starry, Starry Night” – with festive finger foods, beer, wine, dessert and coffee also included in the $30 ticket price. Admission for the Flower Show itself is still only $3, with children under 9 free. Show hours are Thursday through Friday, 9:30-4:30; Sunday 12:00-4:00. Please contact the museum for further information about any aspect of the show 508-222-2644, x.10. Also check out www.attleboroartsmuseum.org

Morning storytime on Thursday will be followed by Capron Park Zoo’s creatures that “go bump in the night;” and after Friday’s storytime, “Burt the Raccoon: The World’s Funniest Puppet Show” will entertain children and families.
Thanks to the Attleboro Rotary Club and the Cultural Councils of Attleboro and Norton, Saturday will feature Jackson Gillman’s family performance, “Riot in the Garden,” while “Animal Invaders” from Boston’s Museum of Science and Regal Reptiles from R.I. fill out afternoon events.
