The 34th edition of the Fascination of Orchids Show was held this weekend, September 28-29, 2013, in Costa Mesa, Calif. The show was held in the South Coast Plaza Village across the street from the main mall. Most of the show was housed under one big white tent, and orchid flower exhibits, auctions and seminars were held in a small room adjacent to the tent. There was a good turnout, and there were thousands of flowers for sale from 20 international vendors on both days from 10 to 5 pm. The weather was great for the event, which was sponsored by South Coast Plaza, the Orange County Cymbidium Society and the Non Profit Fascination of Orchids organization.

If you live in Southern California and missed the Fascination of Orchids Show, make sure to go to the Huntington Library October 18, 19 or 20 for the Southland Orchid Show, which will be held Friday from 12-4:30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am-4:30pm. This show will also feature orchid displays and plant sales. Unlike the free Fascination of Orchids show, you will need to pay general admission to the Huntington Library to attend the show.
