If you're the vicinity of Rockford Park and feel excitement in the air, it might be a hint that the Wilmington Flower Market has returned. An annual Mother's Day tradition since 1921, this three-day-long event takes over Rockford Park with entertainment, shopping, and food.

This year, the Wilmington Flower Market will be held May 11-13. As in years past, the event promises family-friendly fun in the form of carnival rides, games, and live music. Adults can browse arts, crafts, and plants for sale, then kick back with a beer and a bite to eat in the beer garden. Perhaps best of all, the Wilmington Flower Market benefits children's charities throughout Delaware, so your fun-filled weekend will help support a good cause.
