Individuals, businesses, Churches, and Civic Groups are all invited to get creative and participate in a fundraiser in support of the Southport Garden Club gardens, downtown planter boxes, community garden food-share program, and various community outreach projects.

The candy canes are available for $50 each (payable by cash or check to The Southport Garden Club) at the Fort Johnson Visitor’s Center starting on November 1st. The 48-inch candy cane forms are primed and ready to be painted. Create your unique design to be debuted in the garden, then please return the decorated candy canes to the Visitor’s Center by December 3rd. You are welcome to pick up your decorated Candy Cane after December 12th from Keziah Park.

The Candy Cane Garden will be displayed in Keziah Park from December 3rd to December 12th, during the week of Southport Winterfest, with a special Candy Cane Garden Party event on December 7th from 6-7 p.m. Residents and visitors will be able to stroll through the park that has been transformed into holiday wonderland to view the decorated candy canes.
