Flower Festival in Madeira
Celebrating spring and the exuberant blossoming typical of this time of year, made even more intense by its subtropical climate, the island chain sets the stage for a sumptuous spectacle called the Flower Festival, symbolizing renewal, hope and transformation. It’s the magic of these three elements that sets the tone for welcoming spring. The kind of magic that runs through several municipalities of the Madeira archipelago and leaves no one indifferent to the bold decorations that reveal authentic works of art full of flowers.
The Flower Allegorical Parade is the highlight of this celebration that pays tribute to the purest and most graceful beauty, even though it may take very different forms. A real treat for the audience, who can follow the exuberant show where flowers shamelessly steal the spotlight.
There are other delights for the eyes that you cannot dare to miss! The carpets of flowers designed by several artists, especially those in the central plate of Avenida Arriaga, are a must-see. Also, the Flower Exhibition in Praça do Povo and the “Wall of Hope” in Largo do Colégio, culminating in a ceremony that is a true appeal for peace, are two events not to be missed.
