“Preview Party guests will be surrounded by lush displays at their freshest expressing this year’s theme of ‘Orchids Around the World,’” said party chair Sandra Song. “Party-goers will have the first chance to purchase exciting new hybrids and exotic orchid species that growers will have for sale, as well as other unusual plants and orchid-related products.”

Libations include fine wine tasting, plus beer sampling from Kona Brewing Co. Ticket holders receive a souvenir wine or beer glass upon entry. Coffee will be provided by Hilo Coffee Mill.
