Flowers, fur and fun at Floriade

For Canberrans, there’s no better way to spring into Spring than to head on down to Commonwealth Park for Floriade – the Capital’s huge annual floral celebration.

And we mean HUGE – there are literally MILLIONS of flowers16730323546_bc69e8f67d_z to brighten up your day!

But it’s not just the bodacious botanics we’re excited about – The Floriade program is flourishing with fun things to do. There’s the bustling Traders Village, Kids Corner, music, craft, cooking demos and workshops, and even free fitness sessions with local fitness expert Lee Campbell

After its pawsome debut last year, Floriade is holding its Dogs Day Out again so our furry friends can join us for a special day among the blooms to help raise money for RSPCA ACT. Pooches are off limits on all other days because, well, dogs and flower beds generally don’t get along very well, so we’re stoked that they’re permitting pups through the gates on October 6.

See you there!
