It’s hard to believe but plans are already underway for the 2014 107th Annual Rhododendron Festival in Florence!  Mark your calendar for May 16, 17 & 18, 2014! This is a long standing tradition for our community and we are pleased to announce our theme for this year, 'Not Our First Rhody-O!'.  Rhody Court Pins will be available soon, followed by apparel and posters!
