Sierra Madre Wistaria Festival 2003
After months of preparation
by the Wistaria Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, and its new co-chairs,
Maria Murray and Sue Levoe, the Wistaria Festival took place under bright blue
skies on a sunny Sunday, March 23. The town welcomed thousands who came to see
the world's largest blossoming plant, visit the arts/crafts booths, and
enjoy shopping and dining in downtown Sierra Madre's business district.
Unfortunately, the vine was fooled by the January warm spell, and bloomed a
little early this year. Coupled with the downpours we've received on
several occasions the last few weeks, there was a scarcity of blooms, but the
vine was strong and green. The docents were knowledgeable and helpful, and
the turnout downtown at the arts and craft festival seemed to be the best in a
while, though it's hard to say since the new layout of the booths gave the
downtown a whole new look, so comparisons to past years were difficult. Click on the thumbnails below to see a full size photo.
