Fittingly, Greenwood’s nickname is Emerald City because of the green landscape surrounding it.  Uptown Greenwood will be the location for many festival events, with one of the favorites being the “topiaries” created from flowers.  The theme this year is Safari and you will see beautiful flower creations in the form of all kinds of exotic animals.
