Gilbertie’s 100th Birthday Bash

It was worth the 100-year wait.

Gilbertie’s Herbs & Garden Center turns a century old this year. Today, they threw a birthday party. And everyone’s invited.

He’s just about finished his set. But vendors selling crafts and (of course) sustainable products, a petting zoo, cornhole, food trucks — and a great, community-wide, fun-in-the-sun vibe — continue on Sylvan Road South until 5 p.m. today (Saturday).

Congratulations, Gilbertie’s. And don’t wait 100 more years for the next one.

Why not celebrate your 101st?
