Each year, to welcome the advent of Spring, Macy’s in Herald Square put on an amazing flower show.
2017 was the 43rd such event and ran from 26 March to 9 April.
Macy’s Flower Show 2017
Every year the theme of the flower show is different. 2015 was Art in Bloom, 2014 was the Secret Garden and so on.
This year they went to Coney Island and succeeded in bringing the rides and atmosphere to Manhattan in an awesome, floral display of blooms and colours.
Some crazy decorating going on here
Thrills and spills
Sights included a ferris wheel, a carousel, a fortune teller and bumper cars.
The flowers took up the entire ground floor and there was so much to see. I did feel sorry for any workers with hayfever but it’s a beautiful display.
Excellent carousel display
Ferris wheel in miniature
Roll up, roll up, buy your tickets here
Step in, cross a palm with silver and have your future told
On the street the windows held amazing sights too, ranging from a (terrifying) clown to a knife throwing act and much more.
Lots of great window displays too
Strange and unusual just about covers it
I hope you have a good aim
Gulp! This one is pretty sinister
Next year the display should be around the same time of year so if you’re in town, go check it out. Get there for Macy’s opening as it’s always a circus there though!
Going up the escalator you can see the flowers everywhere
Pop in and visit if you’re in town next year during the flower show
