Bloomin' Arts Festival

by Margaret Wheaton

When the azaleas, camellias and tabebuia trees are ablaze with color, it is time for the Bloomin’ Arts Festival in Bartow, Florida. The artists set up their booths in the streets around the Old Polk County Courthouse, which now serves as the Polk County Historical Museum and Genealogical Library. The booths are shaded by massive live oak trees draped with Spanish moss. People flock to the festival to enjoy the art, music, flower show, quilt show, food, and classic cars.
