BALTIMORE (WJZ)– It’s Baltimore’s annual rite of spring. FlowerMart is in full bloom in Charm City.

Jessica Kartalija has a look at this year’s theme.

For Celia Rose Gieszl and her dad, FlowerMart is an annual tradition.

“She gets a new hat every year at Easter and then, little by little, we decorate it,” Leo Gieszl of Baltimore City said.

The free event in Mount Vernon is Baltimore’s rite of spring. About 130 vendors display food, flowers and, of course, hats.

Last year, Celia Rose Gieszl took first place for her hats. This year, it’s tough competition.

Kartalija: “What is on your hat?”
Celia Rose Gieszl: “Flowers, lady bugs, butterflies and bumblebees and hummingbirds.”

This year’s theme is a cornucopia of rainbows, flowers, lemon pepper sticks and sweet melodies. FlowerMart 2012 charms all generations.

The two-day event is packed with activity, including a pet parade and wildflower costume and dance contests.

Kartalija: “How excited are you to be in FlowerMart this year?”
FlowerMart Vendor: “This is our first year here so we’re super excited to be here.”

FlowerMart is open until 8 p.m. on Friday and will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
