Aibonito’s Flower’s Festival 2015
Every year, the town of Aibonito hosts the largest plant show & sale on the island. It features flower & plant displays, a large section for plant sales, live local music shows (of course) and food kiosks.There are also some rides and games for the kids.
In 2015, the Aibonto Flower Festival (Festival de Flores de Aibonito) will be held from June 26 through July 5. This is the 47th anniversary of the Flower Festival!
Finding the Festival is not too difficult — just follow the cars! It is a hugely popular event. This is one of the town’s claims to fame — they even have a permanent Flower Festival Area, behind the Coliseo los Polluelos de Aibonito. This is where all the “official” sales booths, entertainment and food kiosks are set up. In addition to that, you will be able to find small vendors set up selling everything from plants to perfume, flowers to food all along the roads leading to the park.
Most people go on the weekends and in the afternoon. So, if you want to avoid the biggest crowds, plan on going mid-week in the morning.
