From a trampoline to a mini kayaking pond to colorful climbable structures, the 2018 International Garden Festival is open to all now through October 7. Nestled within the historic Reford Gardens in Grand-Métis, Quebec, this year's festival continues its exploration of play with “Playsages II — Go Outside and Play!”.
