The 27th Annual East End Garden Festival is now underway at Tanger Outlets.

The giant tent sale takes place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. now through Mother’s Day, and offers great prices on potted plants, flats, shrubs, trees and more. Many plants are sourced from local nurseries.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Riverhead, the festival is a fundraiser for Peconic Bay Medical Center, Operation International and Riverhead Rotary Charities.

Rotary is also sponsoring a fundraising raffle, with a top prize of $10,000, second prize of $3,000, third prize of $1,000 and two additional prizes of $500 each. Tickets are $100 each. Only 300 tickets will be sold.
