Manayunk is in full bloom this time of year - especially the businesses participating in the Philadelphia Flower Show’s annual "Bloom Philly!" contest. Businesses across the Greater Philadelphia area can create displays or special items befitting “Habitat: Nature’s Masterpiece!", the Flower Show’s theme this year.
Once again this year, businesses can enter the competition by creating a display in their store in theme with the Flower Show. Owners can create the displays themselves or collaborate with a professional designer. To qualify, businesses must feature their homage to the Flower Show for a minimum of 2-weeks any time from April 26 to May 24.
For the first time ever, the Flower Show also is allowing food & beverage businesses to enter the contest by featuring flower-inspired menu items. To enter, businesses must feature their specials for a 2-week period from April 26 to May 10.
