Taking forward the 17-year-old tradition of holding a flower show, HUDA organised a two-day flower show at the Leisure Valley, Sector 29, with over 700 participants showcasing gardening skills. There will bd group and individual prizes to be won at the end of the day.
Deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh inaugurated the show on Saturday in the presence of other officials of HUDA and the administration. There were close to 900 people attending the first day of the show (February 24). The works of the various participants were displayed and were judged by the officials at the show.
Among the visitors there were people from the capital and the NCR. It was like a refresher in horticulture for the visitors and participants.
Singh, who was also the chief guest, said, “These shows not only exhibit the passion of people for horticulture but also increases our knowledge of the field.”
HUDA, like last year, had extended an invitation to participants from various states to present their skills. While horticulture enthusiasts were busy enjoying the show, there were other attractions for children, that included camel rides, drawing, painting and even a fashion show for children.
Speaking to City Spidey, Yashpal Yadav, HUDA administrator, said, “Our aim remains to make this show a success every year, and we feel happy seeing an active participation too.”
