The Annual Rite of Spring

The Portland Flower Show is here to pull us out of the grey fog of late winter!  A $15 ticket is well worth the chance to be transported into spring and enjoy the fresh flowers, trees and mulch, water fountains and garden gnomes and most of all to remind ourselves that there is a light at the end of the winter tunnel.  

A true labor of love, the event is not a huge money-maker for the vendors and nurseries, but does get people in the gardening mood and provides sparks  of ideas for creating that much-needed backyard retreat.

Coupons to local downtown businesses are available at the Downtown Portland booth at the show. After a shot of spring, attendees can head out to explore everything downtown has to offer and take advantage of great discounts and free offerings from restaurants, shops,  local trips and more.

Coupons, nurseries and vendors will be at the Portland Company Complex on Fore Street Thursday, March 12 through Saturday, March 14,  from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.  And from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday, March 15th. There’s no charge for children under 12 if they’re with a paying adult.

Enjoy the early spring and great shopping!!
