Even though Baltimore’s Washington Monument is undergoing restoration, thousands of people visited FlowerMart 2014. They were drawn by the good weather and all FlowerMart had to offer. Flowers and garden accessories were in abundant supply. Artists, arts and crafts vendors, schools, wellness vendors and non-profit vendors, over 150 in all, conducted their business at FlowerMart.

The food was fabulous: pit beef, kosher hot dogs, shawarma, crab cakes, smoothies, Linganore wines were all served in the Food Court. The gourmet food vendors across from the Monument sold handmade chocolate bonbons, kettle corn, strudel, nuts and soft ice cream.

The entertainment was virtually non-stop on two stages, the classic cars in the East Park and the organ recitals in Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church. Dancing, singing, bands, a martial arts demonstration, storytime by the Urban Pirates and a puppet show with opera by the Lyric Opera Baltimore all happened at FlowerMart 2014. If you missed it, you missed a lot of fun.

And of course, there were FlowerMart’s contests. The Booth Decorating Contest was held for vendors. The Hilda Mae Snoops Art Contest was entered by middle school students. Friday’s Grand Hat Contest always elicits imaginative designs and this year was no exception. The first year for Saturday’s Over The Top Fabulous Hat Contest drew several entrants for store-bought hats. Dogs, costumed and not, paraded across the Mrs. Clarisse Mechanic Stage on Saturday. Two women dressed as one flower entered the Best Flower Costume Contest. The last contest of FlowerMart 2014 was the Dance Contest and the Freestyle section was a rip-roarin’ good time.
