Admission is free to the public, and hundreds of people are expected to drop in during this year’s event.
Neighbor Day festivities will include free hot dogs, live music, an open car and motorcycle show (vehicle entry fee $15, trophies awarded), a tractor exhibit and free “kid-friendly” games and activities, including horse rides, inflatables and face painting.
Neighbor Day is also an opportunity for Bachman’s horticulture students to display the work they have been doing this year.
Some of the thousands of seedlings and plants they have grown will go to local nurseries, but many will be available for purchase at the Neighbor Day event: 10-inch and 12-inch potted petunias ($10/$12), seven varieties of tomatoes, yellow squash, and okra (six-pack trays are $2 each).
Neighbor Day is hosted by Bachman Academy, a boarding and day school in McDonald that provides hands-on college-prep and career-education to students with learning differences like dyslexia and AD/HD.
