Haifa International Flower Exhibition opens it gates

Passover holiday set to be especially colorful as Haifa International Flower Exhibition opens its gates with 500,000 flowers from 30 countries

Prepare for a sensational experience: On Saturday the Haifa International Flower Exhibition 2012 gets underway, spread across 30 acres of exhibition space at Hecht Park, at the southern outskirts of Haifa.


The gates will open at 10 am and will close a week from Saturday at 10 pm. Organizers hope that hundreds of thousands will visit what they have defined as a "splendid, colorful experience."


According to the exhibition press release, nine breathtaking "Flower Worlds" will be featured in the show.


"Each world impressively large and spectacular in their rich and colorful beauty with a scent to intoxicate and dedicated to a unique theme: Flower World, Paris Boulevard, The Hanging Gardens, Land of the Rising Sun, Wild World, Senses Land, Fantasy Land, Never land, and the Vanishing Garden."


A vast team of Danish artists and flower designers have arrived in Israel to create the "Flower Worlds," in addition to the over 500,000 flowers that were shipped ahead of the exhibition and will be featured alongside Israeli-grown produce.


The flower exhibition has been a long-standing tradition in Haifa. It was held for 25 years until 1993, when it closed its doors. Now it is making a comeback.


"It is especially exciting to bring the exhibition back with the coming of spring and the blossoming around us," said Haifa Mayor Yonah Yahav.


Beyond the incredible sensory experience, it will be a real cultural experience...enjoying nature's rare creations of real life in the days of technological-digital supremacy is not just a great privilege but a duty to ourselves and our children."
