105th Rhododendron Festival

105th Rhododendron Festival
The 105th Rhododendron Festival is quickly approaching.Join us on May 18-20, 2012 in Florence, Oregon for the annual event celebrating the arrival of spring and summer.The pioneers believed that the bloom of the rhododendrons meant that summer was around the corner. First held in 1908, and held since every third weekend in May, Florence celebrates the third oldest flower festival on the West Coast, boasting large clumps of pink and purple flowers and a multitude of events, including a scholarship pageant, gun and car shows, the 5K & 10K Rhody Run and a parade led by the Sea Lion Caves, this year’s grand marshal, and "Queen Rhododendra." This year's theme is Nothing Short of Wild and is sure to be nothing but that. While the rhododendron may be considered the state flower of Washington, you will find no finer displays of blossoms than right here in Florence, Oregon.
