Bus Trip to Philadelphia Flower Show Tuesday, March 7, 2023

Join the PGC at the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show on their return to the indoor show at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

The bus will leave from Jordan Lutheran Church, 5103 Snowdrift Road, Orefield, PA 18069 at 11:00 AM and depart from the Convention Center at 6:00 PM (the show is less crowded in the afternoon). You may bring a bag lunch to eat on the bus or go to the Reading Terminal Market or other outside restaurants before entering the show. If you prefer, there is a Food Court in the Center. You may leave the Center at any time and return if you get your hand stamped. You will be given your ticket on the bus. Before entering the Exhibition Hall, pick up a program to decide which workshop, lecture, or demonstration you want to attend - this is a good way to sit for awhile! It is a long day on your feet so dress comfortably. Save enough time to make
purchases (lines can get long) and still make it to the bus so we can leave promptly at 6:00 PM (large items can be stored under the bus). Click to download complete info sheet:
