Mango Melee – July 12, 2015
This year’s Annual Mango Melee and Tropical Fruit Festival is Sunday, July 12, 2015 at the St. George Village Botanical Garden. This popular summer event helps develop a greater appreciation for tropical fruits, especially mangoes, how to grow them and their many uses. Mango Melee offers educational workshops as well as fun activities for children and helps raise funds for the programs the garden presents throughout the year. With local vendors selling arts, agriculture and Crucian food – this event is a can’t-miss.
