Just because most of the trees have shed their spring blossoms doesn't mean they don't hold beauty.

Dawes Arboretum plans to celebrate that beauty this Saturday during their Arbor Day Festival. Dawes hosts the event each year as a way to welcome spring and summer, the Arboretum's busiest time.

There'll be educational activities as well as kids' crafts.You won't want to miss the towering six-foot tall tree frog featured in"Flumpa and Friends Live!" And bring shoes that got some grip - tree climbing is encouraged!

Event: Arbor Day Festival

Date: April 28, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Place: Dawes Arboretum, 7770 Jacksontown Road SE, Newark

Cost: Free
