BATON ROUGE, La. – The 12th annual Baton Rouge Spring Garden Show is set for March 29-30 at the John M. Parker Coliseum on Highland Road in Baton Rouge.
The show will run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and include local nurseries and vendors selling plants and other garden wares, including tools, pots, ornaments and landscaping materials.
LSU AgCenter horticulturist David Himelrick said the floor of the coliseum will be transformed into a world of plants and gardens for the event.
In addition to the garden show, the eighth annual Louisiana State and Regional Chili Cook-off will be held that weekend.
“You also will be able to walk next door and talk to some of the world’s best chili cooks,” Himelrick said.
Participants also can visit the fifth annual Baton Rouge Spring Car Show and the event’s first Koi and Goldfish Show.
Children’s activities also will be available.
