Pershing Field Garden Friends will lead the “Big Dig 2020” on Sat. Nov. 7 (rain date Nov. 8). This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work safely together planting 2,500 daffodil and tulip bulbs throughout Pershing Field Park.

This free event will run from 9 AM – 3 PM.

  • Sign-ups ahead are necessary.
  • Masks are required.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Meet in front of the Community Center in Pershing Field Park.
