Haitian Garden: A New Exhibit at This Year's Flower & Garden Fest

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is in full swing in Walt Disney World, and one of the festival's new exhibits this year has its roots in Haiti. The Haiti: Garden of Many Colors addition showcases many flowers and crops native to Haiti.

Guests heading out to the Festival can take in mustard, thyme, parsley and sugar cane at the exhibit's Creole Garden. In addition, the Art of Haitian Music, Art in Motion, Recyclable Art and Haitian arts and crafts are also featured in the Haiti garden exhibit. Bwason Lakay, a refreshment stand (it means "Haitian Refreshments in Haitian Creole) in the exhibit, offers up both adult and non-alcoholic beverages while guests can purchase Haitain coffee and other Haitain-made crafts.

The exhibit is sponsored by Haitian Originale, an organization that strives to assist Haitians by promoting goods of that country throughout the world.

Guests can take in Haiti: Garden of Many Colors now through May 20 at the Flower & Garden Festival; it's located between the African Outpost and the Germany Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase.
