Wildflower Festival to be held at Rob Fleming Park in the Village of Creekside Park
The Woodlands Development Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Howard Hughes Corporation (NYSE:HHC), has announced that entries are now being accepted for The Woodlands Wildflower Festival Poster Contest. The contest is held annually in conjunction with The Woodlands Wildflower Festival, a popular community tradition that is celebrated each fall. The Woodlands Wildflower Festival is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 10 am to 2 pm at Rob Fleming Park in The Woodlands’ Village of Creekside Park. The festival will be held on the 39th anniversary of The Woodlands.
Contest entries should portray a nature scene in the spirit of the Wildflower Festival. Interested parties should draw a favorite scene from nature on heavy, unlined white paper, canvas or poster board, no larger than 11” X 17.” Preferred drawing materials are watercolors, oils, pen and ink, pastels, crayons, colored pencils or markers. No writing should be included on the front of the artwork.
