Rhododendron Festival

The Rhododendron Festival is held in Florence each year on the third weekend of May and is celebrated with parades, a carnival, live music, and classic car show, shine and cruises. Each spring, wild rhododendrons bloom in the hills and fields of Florence as they have been doing for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. The white-pink flowers represent the end of winter and the imminent arrival of our glorious summers.
