Festival of Flowers Bloom in Downtown this Saturday
June 2, 2010 (Anchorage, Alaska) – Join Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. and Anchorage Parks & Recreation as they celebrate Anchorage’s City of Flowers at the Festival of Flowers in Downtown this Saturday. The festival will take place in Town Square on Saturday, June 5 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The Festival of Flowers will also feature live music, art fair, educational seminars by master gardeners, quilt auction, children activities, face painting, flower sales, live auction, hanging basket sales, flower bed tours and much more! A gardener’s potting shed will also be raffled off at the festival and the winner will be announced at 5pm.
Funds raised at the Festival of Flowers will go into an endowment fund for the City of Flowers. The long-term goal for the endowment fund is for the flowers to be a self-sustaining program and not dependant on city funding, even when budget cuts arise. This Saturday, the festival will focus on celebrating the beautiful flowers in Downtown Anchorage and bring awareness to the new endowment fund being put in place.
Don’t miss out on this one-day event at the Festival of Flowers!
