CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Those looking to pick up a few mementos of Spring stopped by the greenhouse at Noelridge Park on Saturday and Sunday. The yearly Easter Showcase features house plants, hand-crafted jewelry and pressed flower greeting cards.
This is the 41st year of the event, and many workers have seen families come and grow through the years.
"It's been quite a tradition for a lot of people to come out on Easter weekend and visit us, I've seen lots of families grow up from toddlers to young adults," said Lori Farmer, a greenhouse worker with 20 years of experience with the Easter Showcase.
This year, the first 500 children 12 or younger received a free house plant.
