“I’ve never seen so many poinsettias in my life!”
That’s what you’re sure to say when you visit the Poinsettia Festival at Fahr Greenhouse in Wildwood, MO. I’ve been told that this is one of the largest poinsettia greenhouses in the Midwest, growing the lovely holiday plants for florists and shops across the country. The Monday after Thanksgiving the folks at Fahr send the poinsettias to the retailers, but the Saturday and Sunday before that they put them out on display.
The Poinsettia Festival is your opportunity to see this sea of red and green (and white, and even pink). Lots of people use this opportunity to snap their family photo for holiday cards, and to stock up on Christmas greens and flowers, and of course to buy poinsettias.
The Festival will have lots of fun things to see and do for the whole family. And Kakao Chocolate will be there as well, selling truffles, caramels, hot chocolate mixes and other chocolate treats. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
The Festival is from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5:00 on Sunday. You’ll find the official way-to-go here.
And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
