What: Orchid Mania
Where: Cleveland Botanical Garden, 11030 East Blvd., Cleveland
When: The show opens Jan. 27 and runs through March 11. Garden hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays; and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
Why you should go: “More than a thousand orchid flowers in every shape, size, scent and color will hang gracefully in the halls and glasshouses of the Botanical Garden, creating exotic and alluring encounters to warm your winter,” according to the website — and is that ever the truth! The gray days of a Northeast Ohio winter can kind of bum you out, but the gorgeous orchids will surely lift your spirits.
In addition to the flowers on display, you can view fashionable floral designs created by students in the Kent State University Fashion School. Check out these special Orchid Mania programs going on during the exhibit.
