Favorite thing: Of course, Floriade is also about people; about the charming little girl with the great hat I spotted running around who just made my shot of the playground; the guy I met who was involved in the first ski resort in Kashmir; the old lady with the walker who was just happy to be there; the artist who was in a nice place, mentally and physically.

Fondest memory: There was also a display of the new Cotter Dam which will be considerably higher than the old one and hopefully ease the water problems that occurred during the last drought. It's going to be a significant structure and will be well worth a look if you're in the area.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
