4/24/2015 - ‘May Flowers’ for Moms at this Year’s Azalea Festival


‘May Flowers’ for Moms at this Year’s Azalea Festival

The saying ‘April showers brings May flowers’ still holds true in Hamilton.

May brings a beloved Mother’s Day tradition – Hamilton’s annual Azalea Festival; and, mothers who visit the historic Sayen House during this year’s celebration will receive a free carnation and a free family photograph, while supplies last.

Hamilton’s Azalea Festival takes place at the beautiful Sayen Botanical Gardens (located at 155 Hughes Drive, Hamilton, NJ 08690) on Sunday, May 10, 2015 (Mother’s Day) from 10 am to 4 pm.  The Township festival is supported in part by Doctors Express, an urgent medical care facility located in Hamilton.  The popular community event is one of the great family-oriented activities that residents love about Hamilton.

“Our annual Azalea Festival is a great way for families to enjoy Mother’s Day together,” says Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “There really is something for everyone at this great community celebration – free carnations and family portraits for moms, the blooming flowers and natural beauty that parents, grandparents and couples love, along with crafters, food vendors and musical entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.” 

The festival’s location, Sayen Botanical Gardens, features a magnificent display of over 250,000 flowering bulbs, dogwoods, azaleas and rhododendron, along with the township park’s collection of beautifully landscaped walking paths, fountains, bridges, lakes, gazebos and breathtaking scenery.

Free parking is available at Nottingham Fire Company (located at 200 Mercer Street, Hamilton, NJ 08690).
