NEW ULM — The 2018 Brown County Master Gardeners’ Gardenfest Tour went off without a hitch Thursday evening. Not a drop of rain fell during the tour hours, and guides said it was one of the best attended tours in years with over 120 tickets sold.

The owners of the five gardens on this year’s tour included Roger and Marcia Davis on Oakwood Heights Road; Jeff and Kathy Howk on Oakwood Avenue; Werner and Judith Lemke on North Garden Street; Chad and Lori Wengert on South Front Street; and Tim and Lora Rahe on KC Road.
