Sunflower Festival 2018






Another year, another Sunflower Festival in Gilliam, LA. This year's festival was different than previous ones. I didn't go with my friend, Tay. Instead, I went with my family. Which is a story for another time.  

The flowers in Gilliam where beautiful! Although, they were smaller than normal, but that can be chalked up to less rain in the spring than usual. Smaller flowers does mean that they were significantly easier to cut and take home as a souvenir. 

In case you haven't read posts from years past (which you totally should!), the Gilliam Sunflower Festival is an annual event in a small town outside of Shreveport, LA. It happens in early June when all the sunflowers are blooming. There is five-mile trail of sunflowers around the town, and several patches within the town.  There is also live music, country dancers, and a wide variety of vendors set up. Looking at all the vendors is always fun! They bring all their artisan crafts and food.  It's usually stuff you'd only see at events like this.

Overall, the flowers were as beautiful as always! If y'all ever find yourself in North Lousiana, you should totally go and check it out!
