The Marion Garden Club members drove in several cars to Cobden for a Horticultural visit. We were delighted to have so many visitors, Jerry gave a short talk/tour around Rancho Bella Vista. Everyone agreed that ” the view” was amazing and today particularly beautiful.
Come to Rancho Bella Vista and celebrate the festival of Chiles at our 3rd annual Pepper Fest. We’ll have all the fixin’s for a real Southwest style Cookout, and you’ll be able to take in that wonderful smell of fresh roasted peppers. We’ll also have live local music an “open mike” and lots of Darn Hot Peppers, Pepper products and items for sale from our Farm Store. (click here for coupon)
This year Pepper Fest is on Saturday, September 13th, from 11 am – 5 pm. We’re pretty easy to find. Follow Hwy 51 south from Carbondale, IL and continue on south past yellow Smiley Tower at Makanda for 6.5 miles, begin looking for the blue “Tourist Activities” sign , then TURN RIGHT immediately after (this is Vines Road); we are about ½ mile in on the right.
We look forward to re-connecting w/ all our Chile-head friends.
