The 50th Anniversay Show theme is, "Platinum Gold."
This annual event is held in the large, air-conditioned Kiwanis Island Park Gymnasium and Annex. It is one of the larger orchid shows held each year in the state of Florida. The Show has been enormously successful and this year promises to be even better.
The show will feature informative lectures and spectacular orchid exhibits created by commercial growers and amateur exhibitors. Commercial growers in attendance will have thousands of orchid plants for sale to the general public. Some of the growers are from the immediate area, while others are from throughout Florida, and the world. The Orchid Society will present potting demonstrations on how to divide and repot orchids. A courtesy booth will be staffed by members of the Society to dispense orchid growing information, advice and assistance to the attending public. There will be frequent drawings for beautiful orchid plants and other prizes throughout the duration of the Show. A wide range of orchid growing supplies will also be available for sale to the public. The show is an American Orchid Society (AOS) judged event. Worthy entries in the show will receive certificates or AOS awards.
The Platinum Coast Orchid Society is pleased to announce, once again, that a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Candlelighters of Brevard, Inc. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing emotional and financial support to children with cancer and their families. The Society considers it a distinct honor and privilege to assist this worthy cause and sincerely hopes the public will attend this beautiful orchid show and help make the event a tremendous success.Click here for a printable flyer with reduced price admission coupon to the show.
