Sunny days are ahead for Armstrong, B.C., now that the Bloom Sunflower Festival will be put on by the Szareks, the couple famous for the Abbotsford Tulip Festival in the Lower Mainland.
The Bloom Sunflower Festival is almost ready for ticket holders to enjoy, on a four-acre plot of land.
Of the 80,000 seeds, they have planted to create the spectacle they will also have red sunflower varieties.
Since 2016, the Szareks hosted the Abbotsford Tulip Festival on their 10 acres of land, an event that will be moved to Armstrong next year. However in August of this year, they will be adding a sunflower festival to their annual lineup.
Now all there is to do is wait for the sunflowers to sprout up in time to host thousands of people at the two-week-long festival.
“Some of them are shorter some of them are taller we do have some American Giants that are supposed to grow between 18 and 15 feet tall,” said Marc.
The Bloom Sunflower Festival will take place from Aug. 18 to Aug. 31 in Armstrong. For more information, visit www.bloom.myzonetickets.com
