A three-day flower show, which concluded on Sunday evening, was organised by Noida Authority in association with Floriculture Society of Noida. The last day saw several cultural programmes and prize distribution.

The event was held on Ramleela ground, where over 400 species of flowers from different places in Delhi-NCR were put on display. Like in the past years, individuals, private institutions, horticulture societies, and housing societies of Noida and Greater Noida participated in the competition.

For this year's 33rd edition of the event, Floriculture Society of Noida had chosen the theme of Antirrhinum, which is commonly known as dragon flower or snapdragon.

“We were pleased with the huge number of contestants in several categories, such garden, road side garden, institution garden, terrace garden, balcony garden, and several others. It’s the first time that we included a photography competition and received tremendous response from the people of Delhi, Noida Greater, Noida and other adjoining cities,” said Ansu Bansal, a member of Floriculture Society of Noida.

Alok Tandon, chairman of Noida Authority, and other senior officials graced the occasion.
