Caladium Festival 2017

The Annual 27th Caladium Festival was a huge success. The vendors and the growers were very pleased with the number of attendees. It was a great event for our town and our vendors. The Caladium Floral Arrangement and the Artist Contest for the next year’s T-shirts and posters were held in the Community Room of the MidFlorida Credit Union. It was a wonderful location sitting on Stuart Street facing all the vendors and activities.

Approximately 1000 visitors  viewed our displays and were asked to vote for the People’s Choice award for both Floral and Artist competitions.

We had a total of 26 beautiful floral arrangements for the competition. 3 floral arrangements were submitted by local students. The winners are:
1st Place       Hope Heck
2nd Place      Margo Sanders
3rd Place      Caroly Reece
People’ Choice  Hope Heck
Honorable Mention   Carole Knoft (2)
Honorable Mention  Gail Wilkins

It was a very successful event for our club. Four of our members were placed with ribbons. Congratulations to everyone involved. Big congratulations to everyone that worked the events also. Job WELL DONE.
