Lake Orion Flower Fair: new & improved

Tiny tweak, big results. That’s the theme of the May 10th & 11th Lake Orion Flower Fair. Changes include moving the event to a Friday & Saturday, securing a date that coincides with Mother’s Day, revamping the layout and selecting vendors based on quality and appropriateness. The 13th Annual Flower Fair is sure to impress while giving patron the opportunity to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift.  “We are really proud of the work that’s been put into overhauling the DDA’s Flower Fair. Our goal was to make this event a Mother’s Day tradition along with providing great exhibitors and vendors plus a good selection.” said Suzanne Perrault, Director of the Lake Orion DDA.

 
Here’s a rundown of what to expect:
Flower Alley is home to ten well known green houses and boutique nurseries such as Wojo’s and Hens and 2 Chicks.  Flower Alley is located on West Flint St. between Lapeer & Broadway Streets.
 
Arts & Crafts Blvd, new to the Flower Fair, consists of more than twenty five juried artists, crafters and specialty food vendors selling quality handmade goods and gifts. Expect to see everything from repurposed garden décor to painted slate tiles to botanicals soaps to the tastiest fudge. Something for everyone. Located on South Broadway between Flint & Front Streets.
 
Home Improvement Way is where you’ll find plenty of idea starters and the companies who can transform your dreams into reality. With everything from irrigation to brick pavers to windows to landscaping and much more, if you’re in the market for summer home improvement, visit this area of the show located on North Broadway between Flint & Shadbolt Streets.
 
Bizness Showcase, as the name suggests, houses both local and regional businesses and organizations.  They include the Orion Township Public Library, Sprint – Lake Orion, Lake Orion United Methodist Church, who will be handing out carnations to the first 50 Moms, and many others. The Bizness Showcase is located across from the Green Thumb Café on East Flint Street between Broadway & Anderson Streets.
 
Feeling hungry? Green Thumb Café is the answer. With lots of mouth watering options, this pop-up café features French fries, yogurt, sandwiches and goodies from Lake Orion’s Great Harvest Bread Co. and many others. Come hungry.
