The 115th Annual Floral Carnival (AFC) now in progress at the Government Botanical Garden (GBG) here will be remembered in particular for commemorating the glorious victory of the men in blue in the 2011 World Cup in a glorious manner.
A look alike of the World Cup made with about 8000 yellow, white, red and green carnations is the cynosure of all eyes. Tourists, including young and old, are competing with each other to have their photographs taken with the floral World Cup providing the backdrop.
Among the other attractions are a kangaroo made of flowers and a floral carpet.
Among the stalls the most appealing is that of the Raj Bhavan. It features about 127 varieties, including many of the top 10.
