They do this 'garden walk thing' a lot down south. You need to pay for tickets, sign up, get a wristband and then walk through the gardens. It's a southern thing!!! Guess they know exactly WHO is walking around your house and on your property.
I certainly wouldn't do that in the city!! That's an invitation for a crime to happen!!!
