Orchid fest (7/24-26/09)
Parkside Orchid Nursery greenhouse #1
The Parkside Orchid Nursery (www.parksideorchids.com), located about an hour north of Philadelphia, holds an orchid fest annually on the last weekend of July. It draws many vendors (orchid grower) from all over the northeast region, sometimes as far as from Hawaii. The local Bucks County Orchid Society usually sponsors the event. As a member, I am glad to be a volunteer to help out. I saw a lot of orchid lovers come all over the place from far and near, to expand their orchid collection. They are not cheap, but for some people money isn't an issue, they just love orchids so much and have to have them! (prices range from $10 to $100+ for each plant)
Even if you don't buy anything, just come to enjoy the beauty of orchids. It's worth the trip.
