Here's another fun reason to attend Festival des Fleurs ... Door Prizes, Lots of Door Prizes! Door prizes will be given away several times every hour each day during the Festival. Door prizes consist of donations from the Festival vendors. Past door prizes won by Festival goers include unusual plants, unique bird houses, fanciful garden pots, and useful yard implements.
