Annual Bonsai & Koi Show, hosted by Edwards Greenhouse for 3rd year. Please prep and bring your trees for show and enjoy good company and demos. Please share this event & location with your friends! There is no fee to attend, so invite any and all friends who are interested in Japanese culture. Move-in will be at 8; please be right on time, as it really does take the full hour to get everyone's trees to look good together, and coming late to setup often requires reworking setup that has already been completed. Trees will be on display 9 until 4, and then tear-down happens immediately after the show closes.
