Bok Tower Gardens will offer free admission Saturday as the Lake Wales park welcomes an award-winning carillon player during its fourth Boktoberfest and plant sale.
Geert D'hollander of Belgium will play the 60-bell Singing Tower carillon at 1 and 3 p.m.
D'hollander, who has been playing the bells since he was 13, first saw the gardens in 1982 after his graduation from The Royal Carillon School in Mechelen, Belgium. The Bok carillon was the first one he played in America.
The park also will have more than 40 plant vendors, German food, live music, a petting zoo, tree climbing and other children's activities.
The Singing Tower carillon's bells range in weight from 16 pounds to nearly 12 tons. The carillon was built in 1928 by John Taylor Bellfoundry Ltd. of Loughborough, England.
There may be small charges for some activities.
The park gates open at 8 a.m. For information, go to www.boktoberfest.com.
