Owner of Root Floral Design, Mia Sandberg, stopped by News15 at Noon virtually to chat about an amazing flower festival coming to Louisiana. This is the festivals first year.

This two day outdoor celebration is perfect for all ages. With acres of outdoor space and plenty of room for social distancing, Pointe-Marie is excited to host Louisiana's first Flower Fest. For more details  visit www.theflowerfest.com.

From the festival website: 

The Flower Fest is devoted to celebrating the talent and ingenuity of Floral Artists through this collaborative event bringing together florists in a spirit of camaraderie, fellowship and culture. All profits of the festival and gala will benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital.

This floral festival was born out of a need for beauty, fresh air, and the sheer desire to create felt by many. With a huge canvas, Pointe-Marie a 120 acre community nestled quietly off the Mighty Mississippi in Louisiana, a competition of 10 floral groups will showcase their abilities, vision, and execution during over Easter Weekend. The selection of Easter weekend was intentional as this time of year is full of life, growth, and the absolute definition of spring time in Louisiana.

This festival is very unique as it is for the entire family and has different options for all level of flower lovers and philanthropists. Each ticket holder's experience will be unique as we offer workshops, food trucks, an endless supply of selfie-worthy backdrops, and the ability to watch these installations come to life right before your eyes. Saturday's Gala will be the first of its kind with a cocktail hour inspired and infused by flowers followed by the official competition, judging, and award ceremony. Knowing that all proceeds benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital is an added bonus to this joyous weekend.
