Like gardens? Like nice homes? Want to have dinner at Sea Level? You’re in luck.

The Friends of Fourth Ward will host the Secret Gardens of Fourth Ward tour May 14-15, noon-4 p.m. each day. And they gave us a couple of tickets to give away to you incredible C5ers.

Click here or fill out the form below to enter to win a pair of tickets good for one day of the tour (you can pick which day you want to go) — plus a $50 gift certificate to Sea Level.

What to expect

Homeowners on the tour will open their rarely-seen private gardens to the public, revealing the secret green worlds tucked behind courtyard walls. This walkable, self-guided tour includes admission to a variety of private gardens, as well as docent-led tours of Fourth Ward Park and the historic Elmwood/Pinewood Cemeteries.
