This Spring, Journey to Paradisios will be cleared for launch, as marvelous celestial blooms await spectators during the annual Macy’s Flower Show. This year’s space-inspired floral fantasy returns to Macy’s Herald Square to the delight of flora fans from Sunday, March 24 through Sunday, April 7. Visitors will be transported into a multi-dimensional world of space, adventure and discovery through flora and eccentrically landscaped gardens that celebrate the wonder and mystery of the planet Paradisios.
The show brings to life the cosmic tale of Space Flight Director Lucy Ryder and her discovery of the planet Paradisios – a pristine exoplanet, untouched by human technology and filled with resplendent plant life. Ryder and R.H. Macy IV (a pilot-turned-cosmonaut and the great-great-great grandson of Macy’s founder) set out on the adventure of a lifetime as they discover the planet’s extraterrestrial beings and fantastic flora.
Celebrating discovery, color and wonder, Macy’s Flower Show will blast off into the cosmos with more than 5,000 types of plants, trees and flowers depicting various outer space themes. As visitors enter each show, they will be dazzled by a space ship as it launches into outer space through the roof into the star-filled night sky. As they make their way and explore Paradisios, they will encounter its colorful inhabitants, floating cities, alien technology, and whimsical plant life.
New to Macy’s Flower Show are seven fashion pods located throughout the main floor featuring looks designed by FIT students. They were challenged to create original designs using the following themes: Shining Stars, Big Bang, Anti-Matter, Zero Gravity, Comet Couture, Lunar Landing, and Interstellar Explorer.
Guests can also visit Flower Show partner Sinclair Oil’s DINO, located in the Kids Department on the 7th floor, who is on a high-speed jet pack adventure through Paradisios in search of the Baby Dinos! Nestled between the Golden Lights Azaleas & Red Dracenas you’ll find the Baby Dino eggs and a few curious Paradigms.
In addition to the planetary exploration, Flower Show spectators will have the opportunity to enjoy a host of themed in-store events including floral, food, and fashion demonstrations, celebrity appearances, and more during the two weeks the show is in full bloom.
