Bloomin’ on the Bricks, organized by the Natchitoches Main Street Program, is a celebration of spring throughout the City’s Historic District.  Visitors will be able to see the beauty of springtime in downtown Natchitoches through its hanging flower baskets and thousands of daffodils and tulips on display throughout the downtown area.  The event will feature lawn and garden vendors, live musical entertainment by the Luke Jazz Trio, and children’s activites.

An exhibit area of lawn and garden vendors will display an assortment of items needed to transform your garden and yard this spring season.  Nursery owners from around the area will sell specialized plants such as ferns, herbs, shrubs, flowering baskets and bedding plants.  Vendors will also sell lawn and garden materials and equipment including paving stones, ironwork, pottery, lawn mowers, and outdoor furniture.  Vendor spaces are available for $50 per each 10×10 space.
