Coastal garden sets Father's Day event

Celebrate Father’s Day with two of dad’s favorite things: fishing and antique cars. The Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens in Savannah will hold Fishing, Food and Antique Autos at the Bamboo Farm on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The Savannah Antique Automobile Club and Dixieland Cruisers will be at the gardens for an old-fashioned, antique auto cruise-in. Fishing in the lake will be permitted at this Father's Day event, but all fishing is catch-and-release. Bring your fishing rod, as a limited number of basic bamboo pole rods will be available.

The cost of the Father’s Day event is $10 per car or $15 per minivan. Lunch will be provided at the Lakeside Pavilion at an additional charge. Cash or checks will be accepted for payment.
