Seasons of Legend - Spring Floral Show at The Milwaukee Domes

This show explores how different cultures around the world used folklore to explain the changing of the seasons showcasing these 5 legends: 'Why the trees lose their leaves' by the Cherokees, 'The Blue Corn Maiden' The Hopi tribes Origin of Spring, 'Zhulong the Candle Dragon: The Chinese Ruler of the Seasons, 'Persephone and Demeter' The Greek Story of Spring, Amaterasu: The Shinto Sun Goddess and Bringer of Light. The plant selection around each section will complement the theme by coordinating the color pallet of the plants with the stories. (Dark tulips contrasting with Red ranunculus to represent the underworld and the pomegranate seeds from the story of Perephone for example).

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Some stories make certain plants like the yucca (Hopi) and the pine tree (Cherokee) relevant, so those plants will be on display as well.

Other plants will include spring show staples such as hydrangeas, tulips, dafodills, hyacinths, stock, myosotis, azaleas, digitalis and many others in an array of different colors.
