PORTLAND — The annual Maine Flower Show will be held at Thompson’s Point Thursday, March 28, through Sunday, March 31.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $17 for seniors, and free for children 12 and under. Purchase tickets online at www.maineflowershow.com or at the door. Military veterans and their spouses can get discounted tickets, $12 each, on March 29.

The show, with the theme “A Walk in Maine,” will feature 13 display gardens and more than 100 booths with plants and garden supplies. In addition, the show also includes speakers and seminars on gardening and outdoor living. Pollinator-friendly mystery seed packets will also be given out to attendees while supplies last.

New this year is the Children’s Garden, which will give youngsters the opportunity to get their hands dirty. Planned activities include planting in real soil, learning about pollination, interactive demos and a scavenger hunt.
