The 2014 Giraudel/Eggleston Flower Show, a national festival celebrating the floriculture industry and highlighting the art of large-scale cut flower arrangement, opened on Saturday. The show, which was first held in 1973, has been in hiatus for the past nine years due mainly to the lack of a proper venue to host. In February, a newly constructed venue that will house the show was officially opened.
