Meanwhile check out slide show from last year’s 2017 Rose Festival, which had a theme of Flower Power. 

Hundreds of roses, rose arrangements, rose photography, rosy crafts and art were on display for the 2017 FLOWER POWER Rose Festival & Show.  Wow! It was our best show ever, certainly the most colorful and the most FUN!

This was a full immersion Festival with the public, exhibitors AND Judges attired in tie-dye or hippie attire.  We had special Flower Power Challenge Classes including “Dazed & Confused or Most Confused Center” and Arrangement categories such as the Best of Arrangement Show “Yellow Submarine” for an underwater design.  The Flower Power theme was everywhere, from festive decorations, 60s inspired lunch menu, and the 1967 era music.  The Festival also featured a VW bus “photo booth” to record festive memories.  On Sunday children made pretty posies at the Flower Power Kid’s Bouquets activity. Thank you to ALL for making this year’s Flower Power Festival a huge hit!
