Attendees had the opportunity to attend the free event at Phillippi Estate Park.
Mother’s Day weekend was in full bloom by Saturday morning when the Bradenton-Sarasota Rose Society hosted its annual Festival of Roses.
The event featured a garden tour, displays of award-winning roses and the opportunity to purchase your own 3-gallon rose bush. Attendees could also take part in “Growing Roses in Florida,” the society’s seminar on rose “selection, culture and care.”
The Bradenton-Sarasota Rose Society has been serving the community as an educational non-profit since 1959.
