NANTUCKET, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — It's a collage of yellow as the Nantucket Garden Club's 46th annual Daffodil Show returns to the greenhouses at Bartlett's Farms this weekend after a two year hiatus.
This year's theme is "Island Treasures," and features a parade of 110 antique cars traveling from downtown to Sconset on Saturday.
The NGC says that the history of the Nantucket Daffodil Show is a storied one as originally the parade had 19 cars in its first year. According to club officials, the number of participating cars doubled in the coming years. Following the parade, attendees were treated to a tailgating picnic rich with daffodils on display.
For the flower show portion of the festival, competitors grew their own bouquets and snapped photos of daffodils of different species and in unique settings.
The NGC also accepts donations to expand the presence of daffodils on the island, and have school children plant the bulbs every year.
