2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show, Hawaii: Islands of Aloha

Leave the luggage at home!  Take a trip to see the exotic beauty of Hawaii – all without leaving Philadelphia! The 2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show is set to transport you to  “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha” with themed gardens, towering waterfalls, waves of orchids, glowing volcanoes and serene sunsets.  This year’s show, running March 4-11, 2012, brings not only a breathtaking theme, but some big changes to the “nation’s” flower show.

Exciting developments set for this year’s event will include:

  • New layout of displays, including the shopping area broken down into categories
  • Entertainment featuring live music, hula dancers, fire dancing and a family lounge
  • New “Man Cave!” for husbands and boyfriends to hang out
  • Daily wine and spirit tastings
  • Hawaiian Village with authentic demonstrations, crafts and merchandise
Displays this year will incorporate new digital technology that will transform waterfalls into flowing volcanoes and breaking waves.  A new iPhone app will provide visitors with free maps, schedules, offers and even parking advice.  This isn’t your grandma’s flower show — but she is going to love it (and want to post about it on “The Facebook…”)New features this year include the “Man Cave.”  Don’t leave your husband or boyfriend at home this year.  Instead drop them off at the “Cave” to enjoy big-screen televisions, comfortable seating (that even Joey and Chandler would appreciate!), sports activities and a beer/wine bar.  Theme nights will include past favorites, like LGBT Night (Monday, March 5, 2012) and Girls’ Night Out, and new favorites like Mother and Daughter Night and Wedding Wednesday.
