For the first time in 10 years since the 40th Anniversay, the SC Festival of Flowers entered the Uptown Greenwood Christmas parade Sunday, December 11th to kick off the celebration for the 50th Anniversary in June. 2017 Chairman, Ruple Harley Jr., led the Festival group in a red corvette. Following behind was Miss Barbie-Q, the SC Festival of Flowers pig topiary, as well as a very large and colorful birthday cake on top of the float. The Festival made quite the comeback for this year's parade, winning 1st place in the Nonprofit/Religious/Government category.
Shout out to our awesome volunteers who devoted their time decorating the float and walking in the parade, and the Lakelands Master Gardeners who did a wonderful job decorating Barbie-Q! Also, a very special thank you to our devoted Chamber member, Gary Russ Chevrolet-Cadillac for leading our float in the parade.
It was so wonderful to be apart of the Uptown Greenwood Christmas parade! We hope you all are looking forward to the SC Festival of Flowers in June as much as we are!
