Summer may almost be over, but something fun is blooming in the town of Sidney!

For a limited time, you can escape into a flower lover’s dream through the streets of this sweet seaside town, snapping shots and taking in the sights of over 10 sky-high floral displays.

Sidney’s Festival of Flowers will officially kick-off on Friday, August 27th and run all of the way until September 10th – so you’ll have time to stop and smell the roses!

The new annual festival will feature unique and creative floral displays throughout downtown Sidney and you can check out the interactive map here for all of the stunning locations.

On top of this, Sidney BIA will kick it into party mode all day Saturday, August 28th, when they’ll feature a town-wide sale, live music, streetside entertainment and tons more!

Click here for a list of merchants taking part in the sale, and don’t forget to stop by Brown’s the Florist between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day where you can take in a FREE photo booth by Four Frames.

You can also enjoy live music by local artists throughout the summer, every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside of Barbara’s Boutique at 2493 Beacon Avenue – check out more info about participating artists here!
