Mountain Blooms Garden Tours

The Mountain Blooms Garden Tours is a fundraising event produced by the Lyons Garden Club on the Saturday of Father's Day weekend.

Moving at their own pace, participants make their way through ten gardens, from private sprawling flower and butterfly gardens, to intimate vegetable and fruit gardens.

Chili Cook-Off

The Chili Cook-Off also serves as a fundraiser for the Lyons Garden Club. It is held every October at the same time as the Town of Lyons Spooktacular Parade.

 

The Stone Cup generously allows us to hold our event in their parking lot, which is the perfect location--at the end of the parade route.  This event generates community involvement as entries come from throughout Lyons. Residents enter to share their delicious chili and compete for prizes.  Participants enjoy chili sampling by the taste or by the bowl.​

The Covid pandemic caused us to abandon the chili cook-off in 2020, and although it hasn't been revitalized to this date, it could make a resurgence in coming years!
