Lil’ Miss Hibiscus Pageant –

9 am Saturday


No need for heavy make-up, high-heels or pageant moms… This is a time for little girls and young ladies to come dressed in their favorite tropical attire and be a Lil’ Hibiscus Princess for the day!

Everyone leaves with a little something and a big smile!

The Park will be filled with plants being sold from some of the finest nurseries around!

Come see the treasures you can find among the beautiful flora.  Jewelry, yard art, pottery, produce and much more.

If Punta Gorda wasn’t the City of Hibiscus, it most definitely would be the City of Song. We love our local musicians and all they have to offer!

Sweet and Savory, delicious delights from some of our finest local food vendors.

Kickoff in The Park
This years festival will begin with our traditional kick off on Friday evening. Our Friday evening concert runs from 6-10 pm, so come join us for music under the stars. We will have flowers, bands, food and fun. Friday evening is time to share a bite to eat, shake our hips and to celebrate our beloved festival with our family, friends and community. We welcome one and all to enjoy the park after our winter visitors have left and before our warm winds settle in for the summer.
Please feel free to bring a chair or blanket.
