The first official day of Spring is on March 20th and since the clocks have sprung forward and the sun is peeking out a bit more, we have a list of things to do, places to shop, bites to eat, and much more to get you out and about during the start of the season.
- Spring Flower Show: Sunshine and Rainbows | Phipps Conservatory | Mar. 19 – Apr. 17
The Spring Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory brings a welcome burst of color after a cold, gray Pittsburgh winter, and this year’s Spring Flower Show: Sunshine and Rainbows promises to be even more vibrant than ever! The exhibit features tens of thousands of spring blooms including including signature lilies, amaryllis, petunias, daffodils, tulips and hyacinths alongside lesser-known stunners like New Guinea impatiens, kalanchoe, nemesia, muscari and lobelia. It also includes larger than life prop tulips, “April showers”, the Himalayan blue poppy, access to the Tropical Forest Hawaii exhibit and much more! All member and nonmember tickets must be reserved in advance at phipps.conservatory.org
