What to do on The Longest Day of The Year? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This year is flying by…. Here we are on the Summer Solstice – The 1st. “Official Day of Summer”! AND, the longest day of the year!

The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year! For instance – today the daytime hours are – 15 hours and 18 minutes. Compared to the Autumnal Equinox at 12 hours and 10 minutes AND the Winter Solstice at a mere 9 hours and 5 minutes… ENJOY these longer days while we have them 🙂

So what to do on this ‘Longest Day of the Year’?

There is the annual Miss Tennessee Pageant that’s in town!

Tennessee’s premier pageant is held each year in Jackson TN at the Carl Perkins Civic Center. The winner competes in the Miss America Pageant. Thirty-six dynamic local representatives will compete for scholarships with one lady  being awarded the prestigious title of Miss Tennessee 2018!

OR, you could do what I’m doing… Getting ready for the weekend and Carters Nursery’s 20th. Annual ‘Parade of Ponds to benefit the Jackson Animal Care Center! Have you gotten your tickets yet???

Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio’s ‘Parade of Ponds’ benefits our own Jackson Animal Care & Adoption Center. 100% of ticket sales goes to support their Mission in our community!

This is the 20th. year for our Annual Summer Pond Tour! The Pond Tour supports JACAAC – The Pond Tour Date is June 23rd. (Saturday). Tickets are $20 and 100% goes to support the cause! Please help get the word out! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’m getting ready for the ‘Moonlight Luau’ party myself! My “Luau Get-up” is ready!

Folks I am ready! My “Luau Get-up” is laid out and ready! Tommy Bahama eat your heart out! 🙂 We are gonna have a contest to see who gets voted “Best Luau Look” and the winner will receive a special prize!
