ADMISSION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Laveanne Lavender Fields Rain-or-Shine Blossom Event- and what that means for you:

  • We don’t ever want you thinking that we’ll cancel for a little rain.

  •  We don’t want you thinking you won’t enjoy your day even if there is rain. Come prepared with an umbrella or rain poncho. We wait all winter for the chance to dance in a warm summer rain so here is your chance.

  • The lavender bloom is short, it is only in the month of July. We’re a small business and we don’t get a second chance at this. There’s no insurance for rain.

  • We don’t refund admission due to rain or bad weather. If you arrive and we have had to cancel due to severe weather and you cannot visit. What we will do is give you a destination reward for coming out in the weather and a list of other things you could do in the area.

  • We want you to know we’re committed to you. We hope to make your visit with us enjoyable, educational and entertaining.
     

When we might cancel:

  • If it’s dangerous weather (that’s rare) like a tornado or thunder and lighting storm that brings sustained winds that makes it impossible for people to stay dry and it is just not safe weather to be in. 

 

How we would delay or cancel (in the very rare occasion):

 

  • We could wait it out if the storm is not going to last much longer.

  • We will give you a destination reward for coming out in the severe weather in place of an admission refund. As well as suggestions for other things you could see in the area.
