Why Go to the Herb and Succulent Festival in your Wilson Vehicle

Herb & Garden Festival | Wilson GM | Stillwater, OK

The Event

Have you ever thought about starting an herb garden to help liven up your cooking? Or maybe you’ve been meaning to get a few low-maintenance houseplants for your living space? This June, the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University will provide the perfect opportunity for you to explore each of these hobbies.

On June 8, 2019, the Botanic Garden at OSU will host the Herb and Succulent Festival. This late spring event is a wonderful outing for individuals and families alike. Visitors can expect to learn lots about the care and maintenance of various plants, from tender herbs to hardy succulents. Gather the family in your SUV from Wilson GM and head over the Botanic Garden ready to learn. You might wish to put down an old sheet or towel in the cargo area of your SUV, so you won’t need to worry about dirt and soil when you load in your new plants from the festival.

What To Expect

The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., so grab an early breakfast and head on over. The whole family is sure to enjoy their time at the Herb and Succulent Festival at OSU, where live music will accompany workshops on fun activities like creating a portable herb garden and brewing herbals.

If you need a vehicle to haul your new herbs and succulents, be sure to stop by Wilson GM and explore our vehicle lineup.

Alternative Christmas Trees

Alternative Christmas Trees
The Perfect Christmas Tree

Sometimes straying from tradition is a good thing. At Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK, we’ve found that these alternative Christmas trees sound like just the right Holiday projects for our crafty friends, and it may save you some money compared to purchasing and cutting down a traditional Christmas tree this year.

Wooden Frame Tree

This tree is an easy DIY project that can even be done with leftover pieces of wood from building furniture or other projects. Just create a simple tree-shaped wooden frame with a few supportive crossbeams to mimic lights, then decorate with your ornaments for a minimalist feel.

Fiberboard Tree

Take any kind of light board, such as fiberboard and have it cut in the triangular shape of a tree. You can paint it as you like—anything from red to light blue to green—and it’s easy to simply lean on the wall and decorate like you would a normal tree.

Chalkboard Tree

Chalkboard paint is fun to use in the home anytime—especially when you have kids. Painting one wall with chalkboard paint allows you to redraw your year every year—even every day, if you want—and then use it for all of your other creative needs throughout the rest of the year.

Family Halloween Activities

Family Halloween Activities

Getting together with the family for a night of fright, thrills, and candy can make any Halloween one to remember. Here are some fun family Halloween activities recommended by us here at Wilson GM of Stillwater.

Watch a Spooky Movie

Stay in for the night and watch a Halloween classic, like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Casper, or Hocus Pocus. Family-friendly movies are a great way to give your kids a taste of the thrill that Halloween has to offer without giving them nightmares they’ll never forget. You could even go the extra mile and invite some friends over for a horror showing once the kids are tucked away in bed.

Have a Themed Dinner

Like any holiday, Halloween has its own set of recipes, but you don’t have to be a master chef to make some scary delights. Something as simple as making olives into eyeballs can put a spin on dinner to make it a little different from the ordinary meal.

Go to the Library

It may not seem like a way to make Halloween memorable, but a trip to the library in your crossover can make the holiday much more fun. Have the kids pick out some spooky bedtime stories. They can read the books themselves or have you read the books to them as they lay their heads on a pillow on the scariest night of the year.
