World Habitat Day

A â€śReStore How-To-Clinic,â€ť which starts at 10 a.m., will show participants how to jump start those home repair projects. The â€śChildrenâ€™s Arts & Crafts Clinic,â€ť which starts at noon, will encourage kids to use materials and their imagination to craft their dream house. These free workshops will occur at the Habitat ReStore. Habitat Savannah invites families to visit the â€śPumpkin Patch Festival.â€ť Olde Savannah Garden and Produce, sited at the corners of Montgomery Crossroad and Marcus Place, will host the festival which starts at 11. The Festival offers an old-fashioned afternoon of free activities including a bouncy house, free face painting, pumpkin decorating, and a petting zoo.
