Philadelphia Flower Show

Tuesday January 18 by Claudia bourneABC News
The Philadelphia Flower Showis big, venerable, exhilarating, and exhausting. Open the second week of March, the show draws 250,000 people, the biggest crowd of all flowers shows in the U.S. The venue is downtown at the Philadelphia Convention Center, which has an open floor that could hold two football fields and a roof four stories overhead that is held up by pillars as thick as bridge piers. Imagine milling with 20,000 people, shuffling for hours until your legs protest and your stomach sends you to the food court, but still only halfway through the hundreds of commercial booths, displays by amateurs, and gardens by nurseries and nonprofits.
