Ocean City Activities, Annual Flower Show

Flower Show  - 3rd Prize
A favorite among many Ocean City Activities, is the Flower Show to be held on the Music Pier (on the Boardwalk) June 3, 4, and 5, 2011.  Staged by the Garden Club of Ocean City, this annual event is being presented for the 39th time.  This year's theme is "Dancing with the Flowers" and includes a number of interesting Artistic Design divisions, plus a Horticulture division.  There's also an associated Trade Show on the adjacent loggia of the Music Pier.

I had an opportunity to participate in one of the Artistic Design divisions last year.  It was great fun, but I also gained a new appreciation for floral designers.  It's not easy to create a beautiful arrangement that fits a particular theme, and frankly, I've never learned all of the techniques and traditions of professional floral design.  However, I was proud of the final result and won Third Prize in my division (In the interest of full disclosure, I should confess that there were only six people in each division, but still...).

This year, the Ocean City Flower Show will be held on the following days and times:  Friday, June 3 (2:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.), Saturday, June 4 (10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.) and Sunday, June 5 (10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) Admission is FREE; donations are accepted.

For guests of the Scarborough Inn B&B, the Music Pier is about a 5-minute walk from the inn so enjoying this Ocean City activity is easy and convenient!
