Floral Fest 2008 (FF2008) Float Procession was held on the 26-July-2008 (yesterday). The procession took place from Dataran Bandaraya JB to Danga Bay, a distance of about 3 Km. The colourful flower floats were then kept inside an air-conditioned Exhibition Hall where they were displayed to the public until 28-July-2008.

I heard about the FF2008 on Radio Era while I was driving home from KL to JB yesterday. So, this morning, I just spent about 2-3 hours at the exhibition hall at Danga Bay to see the floral decorations. Two of the participants are from Suzhou (China) and Macau while the rest are from Perlis, Langkawi, Kedah, Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Johore and Sarawak.

Generally, I would say that Carnation flower is the most common flower used in the decor as it comes in various colors such as white, yellow, green, violet and red. I really enjoy the colour of flowers displayed, which is also a resemblance of our lifehich is supposed to be full of colours too.
