Austin Bonsai Society - 2013 show

Post  JMcCoy on Fri May 31, 2013 11:51 pm

Hi all,
We wrapped up our 2013 Austin Bonsai Society annual show recently, so I thought I'd post some photos of the event. We had about 1000 visitors, sold the heck out of raffle tickets, the demonstrations seemed well attended, and the vendors all were happy with the crowd. It's always a little more like a mini-convention, than just a show! Smile

Here is the main tree, when walking in the room: a very large Cedar Elm:


A Kingsville Boxwood on stone:


A BIG Ginkgo:


Brazilian Rain Tree:


This is a link to my Flickr page with the set of photos from the show. It has the Bonsai, exhibit overview angles, and photos of the 2 demonstrations:

And as something a little different this year (as I moved up to my first "smartphone" - yikes!), I made a short video of the scene:

Thanks Joey, nice show!

Where was the show held, and how long did it run? We couldn't get 1000 visitors... even if we paid them AND told them Jesus was going to be there too.

Thanks Russell! It is held 2 days, Sat & Sun, at Zilker which is our botanic garden. Most of the visitors wander in from the gardens, but we also do advertise in the papers & blitz the city with flyers. Plus we keep a email list of people that are interetsted in hearing about bonsai events (now a couple hundred) and let all of them know as well. No religious sightings necessary! Razz
