Hollow Creek in Bloom – Hayrides, U-Pick Flowers, & More

July 23, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm

Flower picking at Lexington outdoor event



Whether you’re looking for a fun outdoor family activity or your next creative date idea, Hollow Creek in Bloom in Lexington county is a MUST DO on your adventure list. On the docket is a scenic hayride tour through the Christmas trees and flowers and a leisurely hike through the 30 acre Gilbert, SC farm. Take advantage of all the photo ops throughout the colorful flower farm, and strike a pose with Frosty, our vintage blue 1954 Chevy truck. The tree farm is the perfect backdrop for taking that family Christmas card photo ahead of time. Don’t forget your clippers–each event ticket includes a plastic vase for collecting your own u-pick flowers. Kids 4 and under who can sit on an adult’s lap for the hayride come for free.

Check out the Hollow Creek Tree Farm Facebook page for updates on future flower picking events and photos of past events.
