  1. The sunflowers are in full bloom everywhere. Summers Farm in Frederick, MD will be featuring their second weekend of their sunflower festivals. Along with Winterbrook farms in Thurmont, MD they are opening a week EARLY because their sunflowers just couldn’t wait anymore and bloomed early. Both places are featuring acres of beautiful sunflowers providing you with the perfect photo and the option to take some stems home with you!


  1. Cool off with some tasty ice cream from our two creameries right here in Frederick County, Rocky Point Creamery and South Mountain Creamery.
