There is just something about Sunflowers for me. They are the most spectacular flowers God created. And we get to celebrate them right here in the Arklatex every year. The Annual Sunflower Trail & Festival features sunflowers planted along Highway 3049 north of Shreveport. They are in peak bloom the last two weeks of June.

The Sunflower Festival is a family-oriented event located under the trees in Gilliam and featuring local crafts, entertainment, art displays, and food. It's going on all day this Saturday.
