NLR will look different for Plant it Pink Festival next spring

NLR will look different for Plant it Pink Festival next spring

Downtown North Little Rock will look a little different next spring.

That’s when 25,000 pink tulips are expected to bloom in a benefit for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the Plant it Pink Festival.

The idea for the festival came to downtown developer John Gaudin while on vacation, he said at Monday morning press conference at City Hall.

“I saw a pink flower bed,” Gaudin said, “and I thought that’s something we could do.”

Gaudin chairs the Argenta Downtown Council. The idea blossomed when he went to the Argenta Arts Foundation, headed by William F. Laman Library director Jeff Baskin.

A natural partner was P. Allen Smith, the Little Rock-based gardening expert.

“I’m so inspired by what’s going on in Argenta,” Smith said at the press conference.
