The 24th annual Arkansas Flower and Garden Show brings the hope, color, and aroma of spring. You’ll be able to stop and smell the flowers, literally and figuratively, while exploring the numerous indoor display gardens. Get a head start on making your own plans for planting by visiting with the vendors and attending presentations by guest speakers. Amazing floral works of art entered into the annual competition are once again available for viewing. There are special hands-on activities for children. The show is Feb. 20-22 at the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock.
