York City Recreation and Parks has partnered with the Garden Club of York to host the 2012 York City Garden Tour 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

This year's tour will focus on 13 gardens at homes on Springdale and Springettsbury avenues. Proceeds from the event will benefit York City Recreation and Parks' youth programs and the Garden Club of York's scholarship fund.

The tour also will feature free samples of local wine, hors d'oeuvres, tea and a best garden hat competition. There also will be a vendor area at Memorial Park, which will be open during the tour.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 if purchased Saturday.

On Saturday, tickets will be for sale at St. Paul's Lutheran Church or at the Memorial Park Complex near the vendor area.
