Celebrating spring and the exuberant blossoming typical of this time of year, made even more intense by its subtropical climate, the island chain sets the stage for a sumptuous spectacle called the Flower Festival. In the city of Funchal, dozens of floats, adorned with a variety of flowers native to the island, parade down the avenue and leave soft scents in the air. Madeira’s artists make flower mats which are displayed on the streets, with storefront decoration contests and countless performances of traditional music. There is always lots of activity and fun to celebrate this time of year, which is so symbolic of the island. In addition, at this time, the festive climate and the presence of flowers can be felt across the entire island.
Come experience and celebrate springtime!
