"Flower Power-Looking Back at 1969" is this year's theme, so expect to see Woodstock, the moon landing, and other contemporaneous events as inspiration for this year's show. Admire winning floral arrangements, plus succulent and bonsai displays, then check out the youth section, where junior gardeners show off their green thumbs. Chat with expert gardeners, buy floral-themed arts and crafts, and relax in the beer-and-wine garden. General admission, $5; kids 12 and under, free.
