Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy Topiaries to Debut at the 21st Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

It isn't easy being green, but Kermit is going to give it a try at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival next year when he debuts as a topiary alongside his long-time love Miss Piggy. The dynamic duo will appear in the World Showcase topiary display.

The 21st annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival takes place from March 5 until May 18, and will feature nearly 100 topiaries.

Returning to the festival for a second year are the food and beverage marketplace and guests can look forward to new menu items including Piggylicious Bacon Cupcakes and a Barbecued Chicken Leg at the Smokehouse Barbecue marketplaces.

Other marketplace items for 2014 include floral-flavored lemonade, specialty cocktails, and wine and beer for menu pairings.

The Epcot front entrance gardens will include topiaries of Goofy, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck celebrating spring while catching butterflies in a garden with a real waterfall and pond full of water lilies. In other flower news, Pumbaa's topiary will be joined by Timon at the park's Outpost location between China and Germany, while Peter Pan, Captain Hook, and Croc return to the United Kingdom showcase.

The Flower Power Concert Series kicks off on opening weekend with The Guess Who. New acts this year include Gary Lewis and the Playboys (March 14-16), and The Alan Parson Live Project on May 16-18. Other acts include Chubby Checker & the Wildcats, The Village People, and Paul Revere & The Raiders.

Guests at the festival will have a chance to experience interactive gardening workshops and on weekends, HGTV design celebrities will host home, garden, and design seminars.
