Flower Festival in Medellin: Why you Can’t-Miss it
Summer is right around the corner and if you’re still looking for a place to vacation with your friends you might want to look into visiting Medellin. I know what you’re thinking, Medellin had a negative connotation back in the early 90s but here we are 25 years hence and Medellin has changed drastically. The Flowers Festival in Medellin is one of the most famous festivals in Colombia, it has a lot of options to enjoy the city and its traditions.
Every year Medellin is lauded for its nice people, hospitable environment and the most beautiful women in the world but are there any major events that really manage to bring people to “The City of Eternal Spring”? I thought you’d never ask.
Medellin’s Flower Festival
The flower festival or “Feria de Flores” in Medellin is the city’s biggest event of the year and although it doesn’t compare in size to Bavaria’s Oktoberfest or Rio’s Carnaval, Medellin’s Flower festival attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world to experience it.
The festival usually begins the first Sunday in August every year and if you want to see the biggest collection of flowers as well as the most beautiful women on earth, this is an event you just can’t afford to miss.
Ok, maybe many of us could care less about flowers and nature but the event lasts 12 days and there is a different activity every day! There are concerts every day, the world’s largest outdoor horse parade (which by the way is basically just everyone getting drunk and watching insanely hot women jump up and down on horses) and a day dedicated just to the exhibition of hot cars and even hotter women right next to them. It’s basically a 12-day vacation where liquor stores earnings are record-breaking.
The Flower Festival in Medellin is great because there is something for everyone to do so whether you’re into nature such as flowers, bird watching and walks or more into partying and seeing all nightclubs packed, Medellin’s Flower Festival is the place to be for a vacation.
