Learn and Bloom at the Coastal Region Library Flower Show

Citrus County is an area rich in natural beauty and local character. Every year brings a range of events that all offer something unique. With that, The Garden Club of Crystal River would like to invite the public to their annual flower show, hosted by the Coastal Region Library in Crystal River. The event is free and open to the public March 29th and 30th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

The theme of this year’s show is “Loving Our Nature Coast” and will focus on the beautiful cities and festivals of Citrus County. Enjoy unique floral design based on the springs of Crystal River, rich history of Inverness, and nature of Floral City. Then, feast your eyes on tables inspired by our local festivals. Experience the Seafood, Strawberry, and Mermaid and Margaritas festivals in a whole new way!
