The Florence Rhododendron Festival is coming up soon – the weekend of May 18. Florence is a lovely little town on the mid-Oregon coast that celebrates the native flower, the rhododendron, with a historic parade and festival that will be celebrating its 112th year and is one of the oldest festivals on the entire west coast.
