Philadelphia Flower Show 2013

The Philadelphia Flower Show is just around the corner, kicking off March 2nd and going until March 10th, it's an annual event that you shouldn't miss! This year's show, titled "Brilliant!", is all about culture and horticulture of the United Kingdom. 
The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is an annual event at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in March. It is the world’s oldest and largest indoor flower show, attracting more than 260,000 people annually. The Show features large-scale gardens, elaborate landscapes, and over-the-top floral creations.
Visitors to the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show are treated to fabulous design, live entertainment, culinary demonstrations, gardening how-to workshops, and lectures by experts. Show week begins with an exclusive black-tie Preview Party and After Party, one of Philadelphia’s premier events.
Proceeds from the Show support PHS, particularly the City Harvest program, which feeds more than 1,000 families each week during the growing season.

Another event coinciding with the Philadelphia Flower Show, is the window contest! Shops all around Philadelphia (including Arcadia!) decorate their windows with the Flower Show's theme. Also, the public has a chance to vote on their favorite window displays!

For a second year, PHS also encourages Philadelphia residents and visitors to judge by voting in the “Crowd Favorite” category. Become a fan of the Flower Show Facebook page, check out the Window & Lobby Decorating photo album – with photos from each of the participants – and vote for your favorite. The photo with the most “likes” will win the coveted award. Photo album will go live on February 21.  
Be sure to like the Philadelphia Flower Show page on Facebook and vote for your favorite (Arcadia, naturally)!
