Arts to bloom in the Rose Garden this weekend

Thank you for being one of our most loyal readers. Please consider supporting community journalism by subscribing to The Wilson Times.

The 19th annual Sunday in the Rose Garden this weekend will allow visitors the chance to see the Wilson Rose Garden’s more than 1,200 roses.

Artists of all ages will also be taking part in an art show inspired by the roses during the festival. Any media is accepted and only artwork started and completed at the festival will be judged. Artists can also have additional art work displayed.

Judges will award first and second place in the adult division, youth, tween and child division. There are also for honorable mention spots available.

Visitors can enjoy not only the art, but door prizes, music and of course, the roses.
