Marvel at 70 Acres of Sunflowers in Knoxville, Tennessee, This Weekend
'Tis the season. Well, sunflower season, that is. For those venturing to Eastern Tennessee this weekend, you'll have the chance to check out an incredible sunflower spectacle: A Sunflower Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area on Saturday, July 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., as WBIR-TV reported. The free event is hosted by The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and Legacy Parks.
The festival is guaranteed to be a feast for the senses in which visitors can take in 70 acres of sunflowers on their own or enjoy a guided tour at 10:30 a.m. At 9:00 a.m., there will also be an interpretive talk from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Since these yellow flowers are only planted every other year due to crop rotation, the sunflower fields won't be planted again until 2021, so if you're interested in seeing this wonder, now's your chance.
