Princess wild about flow­ers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Sil­ver Princess is back for another year to show off flora and fauna as part of the Kings Park Fes­ti­val.

Played by Evie Parks (18) this year, the Adorable Florable and her friends will be part of sev­eral events this month, in­clud­ing the Fan­tas­tic Far­away Fes­ti­val on Septem­ber 12 in the Lot­tery­west Fam­ily Area.

Ms Parks, who has worked for the Botanic Gar­dens and Parks Au­thor­ity (BGPA) for about nine months, said the Sil­ver Princess was iconic West Aus­tralian flora, very sweet, loved her­self and thinks ev­ery­one else loves her too.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to show­case the flora and fauna, see­ing the wild­flow­ers and lis­ten­ing to the live mu­sic,” she said.

The theme of this year’s fes­ti­val is ‘Beauty Rich and Rare’ and cel­e­brates the 50th an­niver­sary of BGPA, col­lect­ing 50 sto­ries, of 50 words over 50 days.

Peo­ple are in­vited to share their sto­ries of Kings Park from wed­dings to fam­ily re­unions, mar­riage pro­pos­als, first kisses and school ball photos.

Email sto­ries to com­pe­ti­tions@bgpa.wa.gov.au. See the Face­book page for more in­for­ma­tion on prizes.
