Decorated with bamboos and giant panda sculptures, a unique Chengdu Garden at the ongoing 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show has become a popular destination for visitors.
Many people are lining up in front of the booth to take photos with a pair of Sichuan Opera-style panda sculptures and a supersized panda made of flowers, and others are flocking to appreciate a variety of bamboo artifacts while immersed in a bamboo forest installed at the garden.
Co-organized by Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, the Sino-American Business and Travel Association, and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), the Chengdu Garden also features bamboo weaving technique demonstrations and Sichuan Opera face-changing performances.
Chengdu, a horticultural city that is home to giant pandas, has been the first Chinese city to exhibit at the 194-year-old Philadelphia Flower Show.
Founded by the PHS in 1829, the Philadelphia Flower Show is the largest and longest-running horticultural event in the United States, which runs from March 4 through March 12.
