The above video is from a 2012 visit by television host and gardening expert P. Allen Smith to the Camden Daffodil Festival. If you might want to make a trek there to check out the blooms, this year’s festival is March 7-8 in Camden. The tagline of the event this year is ‘Bring in the Spring,’ and festival leaders have unleashed a new website this year loaded with details on the lineup. Highlights include garden tours, historic home tours, a Championship Steak Cook-off, a cemetery walk ( at Oakland Cemetery where this years reenactors will focus on the Civil War in Camden) a Civil War reenactment, an art show, an antique car show and more.
