Fall Flower Show: Japanese Inspirations celebrated Japan’s festivals and gorgeous botanical design through vibrant autumnal displays. Show highlights included a Japanese tsukimi (“moon-viewing”) festival, with calligraphy panels hand-painted by members of the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania, a vibrantly colored, 117-foot-long ryu (“dragon”), as featured in Japanese parades, and serene floating lanterns modeled after those found in Toro nagashi (“lantern flow”), one of the largest lantern festivals in Japan. As the longest-running Fall Flower Show in the United States, the show proved that Phipps' Fall Flower Show is an annual exhibit is a Pittsburgh tradition that can’t be missed.
