Flower Festival











I live in what they call "The Flower Capital of the World". Flower Fields all over the area. Beautiful, like a carpet, full of colors and oh the fragrence.


Then they started building houses, shopping centers and of course they took away some of the beautiful flower fields. We still have a few fields left, thank goodness. In fact if you ever saw the email of the American Flag created by Flowers in a large flower field, that is about 4 blocks from my house.


The flowers are in bloom now and just beautiful.
Here are pictures of a field not too far from where I live.

The last week of June we have our annual Flower Festival. It starts on Wednesday with Carnival rides, booths etc. Then on Sat. we have the parade going down H strret to Ocean/hiwy 246 turns right and all the way to O street. It ends at the park where the rides are and the craft booths. Crafters from all over, booking one year in advance. This is a BIG deal. We have people coming from all over to attend the festivities.
