The 87th Annual Coronado Flower show held in Spreckels Park this Saturday and Sunday, April 21 and 22.  This year's theme is "A Floral Olympiad."  As the largest tented flower show in the nation, the Coronado Flower Show is one of Coronado's biggest annual events.  In addition to home front judging of all the homes in the Village, the Flower Show features "landscape displays, horticultural and floral competitions, lectures, food, beer and wine events, live entertainment, demonstrations and shopping."  According to the Coronado Flower Show website, the goal of the flower show is to:

 

    • To educate the viewing public and garden club members.

 

    • To stimulate interest in horticulture and floral design.

 

    • To provide an outlet for creative expression.

 

    • To convey to the community objectives of the NGC.

 


I've always felt that the Coronado Flower Show marks the beginning of the Summer season in Coronado.  The locals proudly place their home front ribbons in their windows and once the tents come down, it's only a few short weeks until the Concerts in the Park, 4th of July, and a season of Chamber of Commerce Days!
