Our conversation today with Megan Gordon, Executive Director for Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA) and Ryan Cubbage, Asst. Superintendent of Luray Parks/Rec gave all the details for the Page Valley Sunflower Festival happening on Saturday, September 2, 2023.
The pair talked about the various activities that will be available when the festival kicks off at 10am - there's a fun run that kicks off at 9:30am - until 4pm at Ralph Dean Park (625 Sixth Street) in Luray. Now in its fourth year, Megan gave us a bit of history and Ryan told us about the work that goes into growing and maintaining the sunflower field.
The event will feature kid's activities, entertainment including music, a petting zoo, pony rides, hayrides to the sunflower fields, a butterfly garden, food from concessions, vendors, pumpkin painting, and more! Megan reminded listeners to get their medallion at the welcome tent that can be used for food and shopping deals at various Luray/Page County businesses.
