Hershey Rose Gardens

The Hershey Rose Gardens are open and on April 27th will be free admission as part of Gardenfest. A rare chance to have free access to all the Rose Garden's beauty - including spring flowers, trees and shrubs. Bring your tripod, or not, and get some colorful shots of the landscape. As part of Gardenfest the Hershey Camera Club and other organizations will be present and will have tables set up with information. I expect there will be plenty of people attending so you may be able to get some good shots with people or it may take a little extra patience to get certain shots without people. I am planning on concentrating on close-ups so I don't have to worry about people interrupting the shot I want. There should be a lot of photo opportunities to occupy your time. We will meet at 9am at the end of the parking lot closest to the garden entrance (near the edge of the hill overlooking Hersheypark). Park in the gardens lot if space is available or across the street at Hotel Hershey. Here is the website for the gardens: http://www.hersheygardens.org/visit

    Are there any details on exhibiting one's works?

      The Hershey Camera Club (a separate group) will be at the event and it was mentioned that Camera Club members would be able to display and sell their work. Anybody who wants to do that would need to be present at the Camera Club's table during the event to handle any sales.

    Looking forward to our going back to the Rose Gardens. This at one time was a major event for our Camera Club. You've got to love the photographic opportunities available all around you. You have a good eye, you'll get good shots! Warm Regards, Bill.
