First weekend of azalea trails brings hundreds to flower market
TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
The city of Tyler kicked off the annual azalea trails this weekend by adding more vendors to the flower market. East Texans were joined by visitors from all over the state to check out this year's flower market and the forty plus vendors at the Goodman-LeGrand house and museum in downtown Tyler.
Each year, the azalea and spring flower trails brings in nearly $2 million to the city.
"I am so excited about how it has turned out. I couldn't have asked for better weather and for the people that have been so great and so cooperative," said museum director Patricia Heaton. "I really see this as such a good potential for years to come. This market will grow."
The city expects to have close to 100,000 visitors this year to attend the azalea trail. Tours will be going on until April 6.
