It may not seem like it in most parts of the country, but spring is right around the corner. As confirmation of that fact, the 2014 Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival is coming up soon.
The annual event is scheduled this year for March 05 – May 18, 2014. Most of the activities surrounding the festival are free with park admission.
“Fun is in bloom at the 2014 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, where you can enjoy the glow of enchanting topiaries and savor seasonal foods at Outdoor Kitchens around World Showcase,” describes the Walt Disney World website.
Some of the highlights touted for the festival include Topiary Displays, Outdoor Kitchens, HGTV Designer Presentations, The Flower Power Concert Series and Interactive Play Areas for Kids.
While the topiary displays may be self-describing, a few of the other highlights might need some further explanation. For instance, the Outdoor Kitchens….
Basically, the Outdoor Kitchens are small food areas setup throughout Epcot allowing you to get a taste of some special treats. Think Food and Wine festival for those that have been.
HGTV and DIY Network personalities host special presentations throughout the festival. Personalities scheduled include Vern Yip, Amy Matthews, David Bromstad and many more.
