More than 2,000 species of Greek and foreign flora will be on display at the Kifissia superb flower show, Athens, in the Dimitris Zomopoulos Park until May 18th. As part of the show, the Kifissia municipality has also organized a nature festival that has added symbolic importance in the wake of last summer's devastating fires that decimated forests around the capital.
The official opening was on April 30 and visitors will be able to attend exhibitions and individual events focusing on: the ecological aspects of gardening as well as the promotion of environmental messages and organic produce.
Performances of music and dance will also take place, shadow-puppet performances, school bazaars, flower-arranging classes, as well as the screening of documentaries. The flower show will be open for the public between 10:00 in the morning and 10:00 in the evening.
