Flower show in Bethlehem this weekend
The Bethlehem Garden Club's Annual Standard Flower Show will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday with a Roaring 20s theme at the Hotel Bethlehem, 437 Main St. in Bethlehem.
The show is a competition among area floral designers and horticulturalists and is judged by accredited flower show judges.
Three Divisions (Horticulture, Design and Special Exhibits) will showcase 74 horticulture classes; 10 design classes (vignettes, table artistry, still life, spatial thrust, topiary designs and 5-inch miniatures); and nine special exhibits.
The annual event attracts over 1,000 visitors on average.
