Did you know that this Japanese native flower is an official state symbol of Alabama? It was adopted 60 years ago in 1959 and we want to celebrate the anniversary with all of you!
This weekend event will also be part of our Alabama Bicentennial celebration, honoring 200 years of statehood. How better than to celebrate one of our state symbols? The biggest public event will be Saturday, February 17, attended by dignitaries like Governor Ivey and other leaders at the Mobile Convention Center. A public ribbon cutting at 1:00 pm will start a “second line” marching band that will lead us into the show – where Camellia Japonica will be the star!
Place: Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel, Mobile Alabama.
