The festival’s main attraction is the Flower Parade, where flower-bedecked floats make their way through the streets of Funchal accompanied by hundreds of people dressed in costumes lavishly adorned with flowers.
There are also other flower-themed initiatives, like the “Wall of Hope”, where children place flowers symbolising hope for world peace.
While here, be sure to visit one of the many parks and gardens that the city has to offer.
Other activities during this time include the making of flower carpets in the streets, folklore performances, flower shows, classical music concerts and variety shows. Madeira Auto Parade is a parade of vintage motor vehicles, which is also included in the Flower Festival celebration programme, taking place at Avenida do Mar. This is a great opportunity to contemplate the best classic cars and motorcycles in Madeira.
