From early April to mid-May, over three million daffodils of every color, shape and size bloom throughout the island. The bountiful blossoms--in shades of yellow, orange white and pale pink -- grace roadsides, gardens, window boxes and shop windows. The Chamber-sponsored Daffodil Festival, in its 40th year, is a full-scale jubilee of winter's thaw featuring an Antique Car Parade, Tailgate Picnic, and the Children's Beach Family Picnic, as well as a Daffy Hat, Dog and Children's Parade.
The Antique Car Parade is the Festival's signature event, showcasing over 100 daffodil-bedecked vintage cars (pre-registration required for participation). After winding through town, the cars make their way across the island to the village of 'Sconset where participants join residents and visitors for the Tailgate Picnic.
