"Gnome Sweet Gnome" A Father's Day Hunt


Show the dads in your life that you love them like gnome-body else!


Celebrate the fathers in your life with a special visit to South Coast Botanic Garden. Roam the Garden in search of our hidden gnomes. The Bar Society, Inc. will be back selling their refreshing craft cocktails, beer and wine. Charcuterie boxes will also be available for purchase (while supplies last) at our gnome-themed bars.
