Lets take a look at some of the coolest flower festivals around the world!
1:Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival- Orlando, Florida
2: Feria de las Flores - Medellin, Colombia
It is said that Colombia supplies as much as 70% of America's purchased flowers. This week long festival was started to celebrate this success in the floral industry. Massive floral arrangements called Silletas are carried through the city to be admired by all. It run's between July 28th and August 7th.
3: The Flower Carpet - Brussels, Belgium
As you can see from the photo this is one massive effort to create a giant carpet from flowers alone. This event which runs bi-annually brings thousands of florists together to create this masterpiece from over 700,000 Begonias. Belgium has become very well know for producing Begonias as it now produces over 60 million bulbs a year. The event is held in August of every second year and the design varies hugely each time.
