US (CA): The Santa Barbara International Orchid show returns after pandemic

In 2020, the Santa Barbara International Orchid show was hours away from opening its doors to the public and putting on the annual one-of-a-kind show, but the COVID-19 pandemic was announced, rules were set in place, and the event could not go on.

Now it's back. The show is one of the oldest, largest, and most prestigious shows in the country.

George Hatfield is with the World Orchid Trust. He said,  "these people have spent weeks planning and preparing. This is essentially the Rose Parade in Santa Barbara."

It takes place this weekend at the Earl Warren Showgrounds.
