Flower power in the park

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Weekly Life -

KINGS Park Fes­ti­val’s Adorable Florables are the peren­nial favourite at the an­nual month­long event and this year the colour­ful and charis­matic char­ac­ters have some new ad­di­tions to the cast.

“They’re like mag­nets to visi­tors in the park when they’re out and about and al­though it’s all fun and games, they have a great mes­sage about how amaz­ing our WA flora is,” com­mu­ni­ca­tions co­or­di­na­tor Re­becca Mad­dern, of North Fre­man­tle, said.

“Each of the char­ac­ters has a very spe­cific per­son­al­ity which re­flects the kind of plant they are.

“They’ll be wan­der­ing through the park this year in a prom­e­nade per­for­mance and as they walk they’ll ban­ter between them­selves, ar­gu­ing about who is the best wild­flower of them all.”
