Lovely International Flower Show in Philadelphia
Philadelphia convention center is located in the busy downtown area of Philadelphia. The convention center was designed to match and maintain the city’s ease of access. The convention center acts as a host for number of majestic events including music performances, art shows, and trade expos.
Since 1829, the Philadelphia Flower Show has entertained guests with an incredible display of plants, flowers, and trees. The show celebrates the glorious hobby of indoor gardening and horticulture. Each year, the flower show is decorated based on a theme. Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) was instrumental in the establishment of the flower show. PHS does its part in maintaining a greener Philadelphia. The flower show started as a club-only event in 1829. Since then, it has expanded into a national attraction.
