Sadly, I wouldn’t be in town to attend but I’m sure visitors, macro / landscape / floral photographers and gardening enthusiasts, like my parents, will be interested to check out the festival and various activities.
Do bring your kids along and teach them about plants, caring for them and loving the greenery around us.
