Medellín’s 2013 Flower Festival
Every year during the first weeks of August, the Colombian city of Medellín –also known as the “City of Eternal Spring”– blooms in all splendor as balconies, terraces, gardens and billboards get flooded with flowers. It is once again time to come out and celebrate the world-famous "Festival of Flowers."
