Saturday is Daffodil Day in Bell Buckle

Join the 47th celebration!


This Saturday is the prime opportunity to enjoy everything daffodil-related in northeastern Bedford County as Bell Buckle celebrates its 47th annual Daffodil Day.
Drive down Highway 231 North, take a right at Highway 82 and head toward Bell Buckle. The town guarantees tranquil time within the yellow beauty that borders the road to the historic railroad town.
You know that old saying “Smile and the World smiles with you?” Well, it started with a daffodil! And it’s reported in the town that no one could ever look at those bright little, yellow, spring beauties and not smile back!
And Bell Buckle is all about smiles AND daffodils this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bell Buckle residents note they go together like, well, an RC and a MoonPie!
There is the ever-popular Daffodil Day Flower Show, the tree seedling give-a-way, spring plantings for sale, new spring merchandise at the stores, and so much more to do and smile about, according to Bell Buckle Chamber of Commerce.
The Daffodil Flower Show, according to the BB Chamber, has really become quite the competition. Ribbons are awarded for each category in first, second, and third place. Go to http://bellbucklechamber.com/daffodil-days-2/daffodil-day flower-show-rules/ for more information on entering including times and instructions on the different daffodil classes. It’s free to enter.
The show will be held at the Bell Buckle Mini-Banquet Hall 2 next to The Farm Girlz Finery. There will be over 18 categories, ranging from a youth division to a spirited hometown competition category. The schedule is as follows: 10:00–11:30 p.m. entries accepted; 11:30–12:30 show closed for judging; 12:30 Daffodil Show winners announced.
To welcome spring, Buckle will also be giving out FREE, pre-ordered tree seedlings for the 24th year in a row as part of its Tree City USA status. This year’s seedlings to be given away are Mockernut Oak, Shellbark Hickory, and Persimmon trees. They will be available on the quilt square downtown in front of the stores. There is a limited amount and first come, first served.
Bell Buckle started planting the smiling little yellow faces over 100 years ago and oh how they have multiplied! Now over a century later, they are still “smiling and warming the souls of everyone” on their way to Bell Buckle.
