There will be thousands of caladium plants for sale, including new and rare varieties, as well as sales of other caladium and gardening themed products such as jewellery, art and pots. Kids' activities including pot painting, face painting and colouring. Adults entertainment including performances by the colourful Darwin Jameleah Bellydance Troupe, as well as educational sessions and talks.
