Kickoff in The ParkThis years festival will begin with a kick off in the park on Thursday evening. The long loved Punta Gorda Guitar Army will be playing in the park and some of our plant vendors will be ready for business. The festival will run all day Friday starting at 9 am and last into the night with a Friday evening concert in the park from 6-10, Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. Come join us for music under the stars. We will have flowers, bands, food and fun. It is the best dollar ($1 Admission fee Friday and Saturday) you will spend all year. It has always been the tradition to gather on Friday evening to share a bite to eat, shake our hips and to celebrate our beloved festival with our family, friends and community. We welcome one and all to enjoy the park after our winter visitors have left and before our warm winds settle in for the summer.
Please feel free to bring a chair or blanket.
