The Penticton and District Garden club is giving blooms – and residents – a chance to blossom. The Festival of Flowers, on Saturday, June 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., invites residents to enter their most bountiful blooms to be judged. There are cateogires for roses, border plants, flower arrangements, potted plants and photography. Entries are limited to one per class.

The event is taking place at the Cherry Lane Shopping Centre. All entries must be in between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and judging will begin at 11 a.m.

First, second, and third place will be awarded, as well as best in show, most points overall and people’s choice.

There is no entry fee and the public is encouraged to enter their prized petunias, pansies and pictures.
