On Saturday you can browse through the plants available for sale at the Palace's annual Fall Heritage Plant Sale. And, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday take a break from the MumFestivities to stroll through more than 14 acres of beautifully-sculpted gardens filled with an explosion of chrysanthemums. These beautiful floral displays will provide a breath-taking backdrop for a weekend filled with free family entertainment, arts and crafts, and fabulous foods.
