More than 40 artists and performers will take to the streets of Emmaus Borough this weekend to kick off the Best in Bloom Festival, starting at 9:30am on Saturday at the triangle.  The Shops of Emmaus will be flourishing with flowers of all kinds and original artwork in watercolors, oils, acrylic, and sculptures in clay.  Other visual artists include their works in photography, performances of dance, poetry, and music.  The festival takes place in beautiful downtown Emmaus along Main Street and Chestnut Street, between Keystone and 5th streets, until 3pm Sunday.

This is the second year that the shops of Emmaus are hosting the Best in Bloom Festival, with all proceeds benefiting the community and providing crucial support to other local endeavors.  Last year’s festival was a huge success even in the less than desirable weather with thousands of people in attendance.  A high success rate is expected this year with the Billy Bauer Band playing at 1:30 at the triangle on Saturday, and the addition of more children’s activities and events!

Children can meet rescued wildlife 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days at Bach & Co., 417 Chestnut St.

On Sunday, Kathy Miller, author of “Chippy Chipmunk, Parties in the Garden” will hold a workshop on chipmunk burrow building 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Blind Willow Book Store, 420 Chestnut St.

Come early to this year’s Best in Bloom Festival to take advantage of all the activities and sights to see!  If you know of other events happening at the festival, please mention them below!
