July 26-28: Lake Placid Caladium Festival http://lpfla.com/caladium.htm

Caladiums are grown in large fields in Lake Placid, the nation’s caladium capital, and have been compared to the tulip fields in Holland for their beauty.  The 40+ varieties of red, white, and pink, and all combinations of the colors is truly a work of art. The annual caladium festival celebrates this beautiful plant with caladium field tours, art competitions and vendors, bulb and plant sale, antique cars, and live entertainment.
