As a part of annual Flower Day today, free flowers, blossoming displays and interactive activities are blossoming around the city.

More than 3000 flowers will be handed out to city workers, visitors, students and residents for the blooming annual celebration.

At 11:30am outside the Adelaide Town Hall 128 King William Street, Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor is giving away the flowers to pedestrians, with a floral exhibit installed outside Adelaide Town Hall.

We recommend heading there quickly to take your pick as they won’t last long!

A range of other beautiful and creative installations and activities are also up around the city today as a part of the celebration to beautify the streets.

From 1938 to 1975, Adelaide celebrated its annual Flower Day, with the aim to encourage homeowners to plant gardens and beautify the expanding suburbs.

City Council voted to restore the favourite festival some 46 years later to revitalise the city, by spreading joy and positivity amongst its residents.

They have partnered with a range of community groups and organisations to brighten the city streets.

Melbourne Street is decorated with playful, fun and flirty floral mannequins. Flower displays are scattered around popular location in town including China Town Plaza, Adelaide Central Market and Hutt Street.

City goers are welcomed to head to the North Adelaide Community Centre and library and City Library among other spots for interactive activities.

People are encouraged to bring a mug or container to these spots to be repurposed with soil and succulents provided.
