Spring Flower Festival

Date    :  May 1, 2011
Venue :  Shillong,  Meghalaya

The annual Spring Flower Festival of the beautiful hill town of Shillong, in Meghalaya, is one of the most enjoyable non-religious festivals of the North-East.

Shillong, well-known for its natural delights, is absolutely regal in her splendour during spring, the season of the festival. No wonder that, during this time, Nature-lovers from across the country and photographers from various parts of the world head to Shillong to relish and capture her intoxicating sights, smells and sounds.

The festival is hosted at the All Saints Hall in the East Khasi Hills, where an enormous collection of flowers and herbs, and a wide variety of agricultural products including jellies and jams are put up for exhibition and sale.

May is also the month when the gardens of Gangtok are in full bloom and visitors to the festival are invited to see the famed gardens in all their glory.
