Yep, it's still winter, but the New York in Bloom flower show at the State Museum is this weekend, -- so spring can't be too far away.
The New York in Bloom show is an annual fund raiser for the museum's after-school programs and features more than 100 floral displays by florists, floral enthusiasts, garden club members, community groups and student groups.
AOA is giving away five pairs of combination tickets that will get the winners into the flower show and the annual Gem, Mineral and Fossil show and sale, also going on this weekend at the museum. The tickets can be used either Saturday or Sunday.
But, wait, there's more: one grand prize winner also gets brunch for two at the nearby City Beer Hall.
