Time Out says
Mark the arrival of spring in Chicago (at long last!) by heading to Navy Pier, where the Chicago Flower & Garden show will leave you craving warmer weather. Visitors can sit in on instructional seminars, walk through manicured gardens, purchase plant-related souvenirs at the market and obtain culinary tips from chefs at cooking demonstrations. The Kid's Activity Garden offers hands-on projects for kids, such as learning how to plant seeds and growing vegetables.
