The Philadelphia Flower Show - 2016

The Philadelphia Flower Show is one grand event which is being held once a year. This year's theme is "Explore America: 100 Years of the National Park Service" - in connection to celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the National Park Service.

The main features of its floral and garden displays are centered on America's natural landscapes of waterfalls, wildflowers and woodlands from Redwood to Yellowstone parks. Visitors are to witness the witty and creative designs of the world's leading floral and landscape designers which include exhibitions by at least 408 national parks and historic sites as the show has partnered with the Park Service.

The show is run by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) and gets revenues which supports various charities of PHS.
The Philly Flower Show offers more than just floral and landscape exhibits as well. Visitors can shop to at least more than 100 vendors, and can sample wine and spirits from products coming from around the world. Visitors can also enjoy culinary and horticultural demonstartions, and the "Butterfly Experience", - a miniature train garden is another one additional feature added this year.

There is always more to look forward to every year for this type of flower show, as they have different themes yearly!
