2014 Festival of Flowers, No. 1
From May 30 through June 10, Pioneer Courthouse Square hosted the latest Festival of Flowers. Every single time I've seen this display, I've been awestruck at the designs and the colors. If you'd like to see photos of the other times I've managed to make it to see this glorious sight, just search the blog for Festival of Flowers.
Here's what I found online about this year's festival: “A-maze-ing” designed by DAO Architecture opens to the public on May 30th. This two-week Festival of Flowers installation inspired by Pioneer Courthouse Square’s 30th birthday will transform the Square into a colorful interactive maze of nearly 20,000 begonias, marigolds, impatiens and more. The celebration will continue along the downtown transit mall celebrating Portland Mall Management, Inc.’s fifth birthday with a series of floral designs at the Congress Center and Unitus Plaza. The designs will remain throughout downtown until June 10th.
