Annual flower show to resume after five-year gap
The city’s renowned flower expo which was on hold for about five years, is being brought back, with a 3-day show to be conducted on a budget of Rs 35 Lakh, according to the District Collector
The annual flower show in this city, suspended for the last five years due to various natural calamities, will resume this year, District Collector E Vallavan said today. Speaking to reporters here, he said the flower show could not be conducted after 2011 due to natural calamities like Thane cyclone, drought and other unforeseen circumstances.
Karaikal is an enclave of the union territory of Puducherry. The Collector said the Puducherry government has allotted Rs 35 lakh for conducting the three-day show, which will be held from February 5. In addition to this amount, private establishments had also come forward to contribute for the show, he said. Flowers, vegetables and fruits from Puducherry and neighbouring states would find place in the show.
Rural folk artistes would stage programmes with a view to preserving the cultural heritage of this region. In addition, school and college students would participate in cultural events. Earlier, Vallavan held a meeting with officials of various departments and discussed arrangements for the show.
