Community Flower Show Returns to Thurston County Fair
After two years of cancellations due to the pandemic, the annual Fair Flower Show returns this summer from July 27-July 31 at the Thurston County Fairgrounds in Lacey, WA! The public is invited to participate by entering their prettiest roses, dahlias, vegetables, herbs, designs, crafts and many other types of horticulture. There is a special section of the show just for youth!
The show is titled “150 Years of Fabulous: A Patriotic Flower Show” as the Fair will be celebrating their 150-year anniversary. Garden club members of the Black Hills District are responsible for this annual event, dedicating endless hours in planning, set up, preparing entries, and hostessing the event every year.
The show will contain these sections; horticulture, floral design, youth entries, educational exhibits and botanical arts.
