Staten Island Chuck, NYC's resident groundhog at the Staten Island Zoo, predicted early spring. Chuck was wrong! The official groundhog Phil declared on February : a slow transition to spring is in store for most of the United States this year. Mixed rain and snow events for New York City will take place into April.
If you really want to embrace Spring, then you just might want to head to the Macy's Flower Show. Every March dozens of wonderful blooming flowers declare the arrival of spring.
The show is a two-week long event. It's held on the 1st & mezzanine floor of the east side of Macy's. There are free guided tours every 15 minutes. Thousands of blooms decorate the Herald Square store, plus Square store, plus seminars on flower arranging, fashion shows, events for kids including breakfast with the Easter Bunny, and more.
This year theme is "Once Upon a Springtime". The grand entrance to this year’s show invites you to enter the castle tower. If you are tired of an endless winter and love classic fairytales, princesses, evil queens, fairy godmothers, and noble knights, my advice is : go To Macys!
