Little did I know that the Festival Of Flowers is a yearly event that started 53 years ago to showcase this beautiful small South Carolina town as a destination for flowers and family fun. This event is among the top twenty tourism events in the South East. It features 44 living topiary sculptures spread out through uptown. It was not very crowded today likely due to Covid which has slowed down our economy so drastically. I saw several people wearing masks especially when going into stores. It was pretty hot on this Friday morning, after a couple of hours we were ready to find some shade.
