The 2012 Zhuzihu Calla Lily Festival is underway in Yangmingshan’s Zhuzihu area and will run until April 29. Calla lilies are expected to be in bloom until the end of May. The theme of this year’s festival is Aesop’s Fables, and farmers have creatively incorporated scenes from the fables into the Calla lily fields, giving visitors some extra enjoyment as they pick fresh flowers.

The festival’s organizers are also presenting a series of pastoral concerts, guided ecological and cultural tours around Zhuzihu, and creative do-it-yourself gardening workshops. In addition, a “Calla lily flash mob party” — the first of its kind — will be held on Zhuzihu Boulevard this coming Sunday at 10:30am. People can register on site on the day of the event to join characters from Aesop’s Fables on a tour around the Calla lily fields.
