Flower show in bloom in Pittsburgh

December 4, 2013 by  

The Winter Flower Show is continuing in Pittsburgh until January of next year. Among others, the event features the designs of artists Matthew McCormack and Jenn Figg, who are in charge of the Tropical Forest Conservatory.

The show, which has been running since November 29, features designs of garden scenes, giant glass mushrooms, and thousands of LED lights. There is also a dinosaur-themed Garden Railroad for the kids, as well as the Winter Light and Outdoor Gardens.

Santa will be visiting until December 22 and there will be several family fun days. One upcoming event will be the New Year’s Eve Family Celebration taking place from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. In addition, visitors can enjoy an exhibit of the water colors of Michael M. Stueber in the Welcome Center.

The show will also be accepting donations for the U.S. Marine Corps’ ‘Toys for Tots’ program. It should be a magical way to celebrate the upcoming holidays and is suitable for the entire family, except for admission to the Tropical Forest Conservatory, which is reserved for those aged 21 or older.

Pittsburgh printing companies are often called on to help advertise events like this, which usually includes the printing of flyers and posters to be distributed throughout the city.

The Winter Flower Show is taking place at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens until January 12, 2014 from 9:30 am – 11:00 pm. Admission is $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and students, and $11 for children aged 2 to 18. For more information, call 412-622-6914.
